P2P Architectures and Credibility-based Annotations of News Articles

Credible Web Community Group,

Hello. I was thinking about technologies for news article credibility annotations and P2P filesharing networks came to mind. End-users of such systems could once, in a limited sense, annotate resources and these structured annotations were stored on and retrieved from a distributed network of computers. Back in the day, a scenario involved end-users commenting, annotating, or providing ratings with regards to resources, for example to indicate whether an MP3 was valid or invalid.

Using P2P systems for Web annotations is discussed in [3][4] and the ruggedization of this variety of P2P system is discussed in [5][6].

With respect to Web browser integration scenarios, P2P systems can be envisioned which can provide rapid credibility summary results to a large number of end-users, information suitable to be visualized in the form of a Web browser address bar icon (e.g., next to the HTTPS lock symbol), and these systems could provide more in-depth data whenever end-users click on such icons to view more detailed credibility-based information about a Web-based resource.

As interesting to the group, perhaps we could consider and discuss uses of modern P2P architectures, broadly, for storing and retrieving structured credibility-based annotations of news articles? Any thoughts?

Best regards,
Adam Sobieski
