AttentionTrust and problems with /ROOT

If my last post got you interested in the AttentionTrust project, and you downloaded the extension, are using it now, and are reading this on (whew, lot's of 'if's), then you may have noticed that is now a certified member.  What does that mean for you?

First, that I agree with four principles that the AttentionTrust organization puts forward;

1. Property : You own your attention and can store it wherever you wish.
2. Mobility : You can securely move your attention wherever you want whenever you want to.
3. Economy : You can pay attention to whomever you wish and receive value in return.
4. Transparency : You can see exactly how your attention is being used.

Second, that I'll be moving closer towards these goals.  One of the things I've believed in for a long time is that one should share information on the Internet, hence the numerous articles that I've written and provided for free.

While I do not believe that a free Internet is feasible, information should not be associated with a dollar sign.

To that end, one way to pay someone back for the information they provide is by simply leaving a comment.  In other words, giving attention is value.

While I've believed in this for a number of years, and mentioned it here and there, I've never made sure it was immediately in view - that's exactly what I'll be working towards.


On another note, I'm still having problems accessing the Root Vault that I setup yesterday.  It appears that since I've reset my password I've been unable to log back in ...  Hmm.  I've got a request off to support, so I'll be sure to pass on what I find.

I'm looking at the Attention Toolkit to see if I can't write some code to allow someone to access their own data on their own computer (so long as they have PHP installed).  Again, I'll pass on what I create.
