Not Fit-for-Purpose - MSI Integrity

Not Fit-For-Purpose reflects on a decade of research and analysis into international standard-setting Multi-Stakeholder Initiatives (MSIs).

Operator Design Questions

It is of limited value to discuss building blocks and reference models of operators in an abstract way. As a way forward, we would like to focus on a number of design questions that touch upon technical, legal, business and societal perspectives. the discussion should clarify how operators can and should adhere to the MyData principles.

On Privacy versus Freedom

There’s been a rather interesting disagreement between two guys from Signal and Matrix recently. Many of the points they make relating to building competitive, privacy/freedom-protecting products and the difficulties are quite relevant. Here is the original post from Signal that lead now to the response from Matrix.

Minimum Standard for a MyData Operator

I’m interested in the MyData Operator concept. Particularly interested in the minimum viable protocol that would be required to make person switching from one operator to another seamless. In cases where the person wants to be their own operator, will there be open source code that implements the minimum standards to support that?
