  • 9. ...it matters to him...
  • 10. ...there are things you don’t want to be associated with...
  • 11. ...what if you’re this guy (or one of his friends) and want to work in vaccine research...?
  • 12. ...funders want more information on outputs
  • 13. More measurement http://www.flickr.com/photos/redjar/136165399 CC-BY-SA
  • 14. Greater diversity of outputs
  • 15. ...serious consequences http://www.flickr.com/photos/erix/27946743 CC-BY
  • 16. ...and we’re spending £12B of the taxpayer’s money http://www.flickr.com/photos/joeshlabotnik/2143212474 CC-BY
  • 17. ...it might be nice to get this right
  • 18. ...it might be nice to get this right(ish)
  • 19. ...but that’s all a bit negative http://www.flickr.com/photos/bensonkua/3165739586 CC-BY-SA
  • 20. what about a positive view? http://www.flickr.com/photos/29412527@N04/3393371408 CC-BY
  • 21. ...if I want to see more open data http://www.flickr.com/photos/swanksalot/2704017177 CC-BY-SA
  • 22. ...a more diverse research community http://www.flickr.com/photos/untitlism/22800371 CC-BY
  • 23. ...if I want people to agree to referee requests...
  • 24. ...then they need to be recognised and rewarded http://www.flickr.com/photos/wmjas/68005012 CC-BY-SA
  • 25. Rewards can be big... http://www.flickr.com/photos/natematias/310642831 CC-BY-SA
  • 26. ...or small...
  • 27. ...but need to be recognised
  • 28. ...trusted http://www.flickr.com/photos/joi/2941559903 CC-BY
  • 29. ...and unambiguously linked to one person http://www.flickr.com/photos/frielp/2661943 CC-BY
  • 30. In today’s world with its diverse outputs and metrics any assessment that cannot be independently and automatically replicated is not credible.
  • 31. For usability, transparency, and reliability, we need a clear researcher id http://www.flickr.com/photos/_dietrich/2402860858 CC-BY
  • 32. So what should it look like? http://www.flickr.com/photos/37868257@N05/3546402630 CC-BY
  • 33. A token, not an authentication mechanism
  • 34. For researchers, by researchers
  • 35. The property of the individual, not controlled by a commercial group
  • 36. ...or their institution
  • 37. Any centralised authority must represent all the stakeholders not just entrenched interests.
  • 38. Future proof, portable, and native to the open data web.
  • 39. ...whose data do you trust? http://is.gd/thVr
  • 40. We
trust
people... ...not
objects
  • 41. A semantic social web of objects (and data, and process and...)
  • 42. (Some
of)
the
 people
I
trust... ...in
different
ways
 and
for
different
 things
  • 43. No single metric will work for every person or purpose...
  • 44. ...but with robust identity tokens we can build metrics for the purpose at hand
  • 45. We can build a reward structure that supports a more diverse and open research community.
  • 46. But more importantly
  • 47. We can build and manage the trust networks that will let us navigate an open web of data.
