Re: CredWeb Outros (was Re: long time no chat, CredWeb friends)

Thank you to those of you who've written so far, and to Sandro for once
again saving me from myself when it comes to Community Group administration.

For my "outro" I am still on the board of JournalList, which is still the
caretaker of the trust.txt framework. Things there are inching forward. The
system works and can be a great tool to help identify news sources who have
met at least the threshold of belonging to an industry association. The
hard part has been getting publishers to take the three minutes needed to
actually post their trust.txt files.  We have some hope that Chrome's
dumping of Third-Party Sets that people will be looking for a solution and
find trust.txt, which is an easy, distributed, way to show a relationship
between sites. Right now Google's solution (in my opinion) is a mess.

It will be lovely to see many of you again for the first time in a long
time! See you a week from Wednesday.
