Someone just pointed me at this project today.

My name is Pelle Braendgaard I have been involved with payments,
authentication standards, signatures etc since the late 90s. I am currently
working on a startup http://picomoney.com which is a platform for creating
tradable electronic assets.

I have been working with a growing community over the last year or two on
pushing a really simple standard for payments (or more generically asset
transfers) over http and oauth.

Our work is at http://opentransact.org . There are several examples on our
github project http://github.com/opentransact

The goals behind open transact are exactly the same as those outlined at
payswarm. From a technical point of view we do take a slightly lower level
over the the current payswarm work.

I haven't read enough yet on payswarm. So I will comment when I understand

I would definitely like to include OpenTransact and the work we have done
into this process.

Most of our discussions have been done on this list:
