TrustPlus Inc.

The most interesting startup I saw demoing at WebInno tonight. Reputation system (with Firefox & IE plugin) that is intended to span across all online interactions and transactions — From Craigslist to Match.com! I think it’s going to have a hard time getting traction, but the guys I spoke to had clearly thought through the problem well and taking steps to avoid the gaming and fraud inherent in something like eBay’s reputation system.

The tenth Web Innovators Group meetup. By my guesstimate, there were well over 200 people there this evening, a far cry from the 60 or so crammed into the back room at Tommy Doyle's the first time I went.

BBC NEWS | Glastonbury ticket site goes live

In an attempt to stop the resale of tickets for this year’s Glastonbury, you’ll need to supply a photograph in advance of the on-sale date, which will be printed on your tickets if you buy some. Gonna be interesting to see if this works, and/or spreads to other events.
