Yes, that might be worrying. However, only small pieces of the specification are not yet properly defined. From a high level perspective, it's not such a problem. From the developer perspective, yes, this requires quite some effort.

Thanks, Maciej --

It's the 'spec has been changing' that worries me.  If I am running a business, I want some level of stability ahead of building and distributing my dependent product. Otherwise, it's still too early.

Yours from the bleeding edge ;-)

Here at the SMART project we are working hard to turn the PoC code to a proper usable library. It will be open source and we're trying our best to make it available as soon as possible. Please note, however, that the specification has been changing in quite a few places and once it's more stable our progress should be more visible.

If I were building a Bynamite-like service, is there an UMA implementation I could use today as a coding starting point?

We are certainly going to see more user managed data sites/services emerging  as a statisticallly significant portion of early adopters start doing this for real.

At what point do you want to make UMA's model public?  Are there any toolkits or APIs yet?

This is all about managing expectations.

All -

Even though this article reads more like an advert for Bynamite.com, it
looks like the way is being paved for UMA to make its case to the public.


I wonder if it makes sense to start picking some reasonable journalists
to begin briefing on the work?  If so, this sounds like something to ask
the Kantara Marketing Committee for assistance.
