Several people have implemented receiving vouches. It is relatively easy to look at a vouch URL and see if it links to a third-party who you have approved of in the past. While there are more advanced things you can do, that is the basic summary of the protocol. The harder part, and less implemented by others is sending of vouches. Where do you find people who have been approved by people you have approved of? It would really help if we had some more discussion on this.

Hey! My name is Ian O’Byrne.
I am an educator, researcher, and speaker. My work centers on teaching, learning, and technology. I study literacy practices of individuals in online, and hybrid spaces.
I use this website as my primary hub for online presence and communication. I’m trying to follow the tenets of the IndieWeb movement in owning all of my own data and publishing on my own site and syndicating elsewhere (POSSE).
On this website you’ll find a trail of my digital breadcrumbs as I consume, curate, and create. I’ll archive all of the things I’ve read online. These could be bookmarks to visit, videos to watch, photos, and quotes that inspired me.
I am social. Feel free to contact me.
I’ll continue to blog here at EdTech Factotum. The only difference is now this will just be a regular ol’ blog and there won’t be any newsletters emailed to you fine folks. I’ll still post the occasional summary of what I read here. And you can still follow along via the RSS feed (remember those?), Twitter, or my EdTech Factotum Facebook page.
I live in Canada, currently in Calgary. I have also lived in Central and Eastern Canada, and in Asia.
I don’t blog a lot, and this frequency suits me. I do go through phases depending on the season and depending on time commitments.
Generally, this blog is about (but not limited to) education and technology.
