Thanks Melvin for bringing this topic :)

I have contacts to people from: http://webcred.co and also asked friend of mine to connect me with people he knows from https://trustcloud.com

I would like to invite them to collaborate on this topic, most likely also reaching out to people from other projects working in this field like:
* https://connect.me
* http://www.trustmap.org
* more suggestions?

I guess for now I can direct them to http://www.w3.org/community/unctsw/

Cheers! :)
