Session: Thursday 3E

Conference: IIW-11 November 2-4, Mountain View, Complete Notes Page

Convener: Doc

Notes-taker(s): Alan Karp


Discussion notes:

  • Left button represents user's policy
  • Right button represents seller's policy
  • Buttons merge if policies are compatible
  • Seller (and user?) are informed of what doesn't match
  • User clicks right button if no agreement and can change user's policy for this seller, sellers want to avoid this friction so they use policies likely to be accepted by most users
  • User clicks left button to change policy for all sellers
