h2. AttentionTrust.org board meeting
* Stan James — guy from outfoxed.com is developer, that outfoxed is about people getting
trusted information from people they trust.
* diffreence between explicit and implicit information gathering
* where do you spend your time? that some places you spend the most time may not be bookmarked or show up in other ways of gathering attention
* that servers/services have to be attention trust compliant
* sending your data to a service is not mandatory
* lot of discussion what attention.xml is and is not and what the foundation does and does not do.
* the a variety of groups and services already capture attention, this
gives the user a way of captureing their own "attention" and doing something with it.
* rojo networks an early partner for attentiontrust
* collecting title, url, cookie sent, cookie set, http response code,
* that this is related to but separate from attention.xml.
* some confusion over what data is actually collected. What happens if there's PII
in the URL being recorded?
* basically, the gyst is this: record the clickstream of a user, whatever that may entail, and make it available to data providers / processors
* what problem does this solve?
* no discussion about privacy implications
