Do you respect me?

As a follow on to the previous post; an interesting thing happens as the ecology evolves. When a vendor chooses to accept a given level of DSA (Data Sharing Agreement) they can (they don’t have to!!) register the fact with IDC(Identity Commons). This would enable them to get informed if that DSA was changed. It would also enable IDC to, with the vendors permission, publish a registry of vendors, or service providers, that accept that level of DSA. I could therefore choose my service provider, for any service, by searching the list of providers that are going to give me the highest level of control over my data. I think that’s cool!
