Liz Gannes, author of the NetworkEffect column on the WSJ AllThingsDigital tech blog, just published this video interview of Drummond Reed at SXSW that provides a longer explanation of what Connect.Me will actually do as a personal network. She comments, near the end of the story:

…Reed is using geeky descriptors like “a trust framework around the way we exchange personal data.” In fact, the company’s platform is to be branded the Respect Trust Framework.

We’ll have a lot more to say about the Respect Trust Framework over the next few weeks; it is indeed the keystone to building a personal trust network at Internet scale.
