Experts on Trust – Clemens Cap


Trust ExchangeWe are delighted to kick off our series “Experts on Trust ” with Clemens Cap. Clemens is currently professor at University Rostock, Germany, researching on Digital Networks and Online Media.

Three questions on Trust

  • Whom do you trust online?
    • Large organisations with wide public visibility which, should they violate trust in general, would get sufficient PR coverage so that I know about it or PR damage so they do not abuse trust.
    • Techniques which allow me to verify trust (https).
    • Content which is networked and thus allows me to have it independently checked.
    • People and users usually not so much since it is difficult to verify their true identity anyhow – unless I know them closely, their email address and communication habits.
  • What is your trust built on?
    • Public visibility of an organisation, possibility to verify my trust.
  • What difference does trust make?
    • I read their communication, I transact business, I spend time or money on them.

Details on the Trust Exchange

As a warm up to the Trust Exchange Research, themashazine asks three questions on trust to bloggers, geels, developers, online experts and other nerds. These questions go to a wide sample of users in Central- and Eastern Europe, Russia and Eurasia.

  • Whom do we trust online?
  • What is our trust built on?
  • What difference does trust make?

Please support the Trust Exchange Research by putting in your two cents, either right here or via editors (at) the mashazine (dot) com or on der-karl.com-page on Facebook.

Trust Exchange Research – the Process

Step 1, Getting in Touch – bloggers, online experts and other geeks from Central- and Eastern Eurpe, Eurasia (and a few exceptions) are asked to contribute short (or longer) statements on three questions.
Statements are collected and published until the end of october 2009.

Step 2, Looking Closer – based on the insights, more detailed questionnaires are prepared and distributed to a broader group of participants. Case studies of trust-building online-media-activities (from corporations, ngos or other associations – we are open for suggestions)

Step 3, Sit down and talk – der-karl.com will organise the discussion of the results; in online-discussions, hopefully also face-to-face in a TrustCamp.

Step 4, Publication – the consolidated story of researching trust in online media will be published in summer 2010.

What’s in it for me
Every participant will receive a full downloadable copy (pdf) of the report.

Das Kapital, die Unternehmensgröße und das lebenslange Lernen

Neue Arbeitsformen werden skeptisch beäugt. Kein Wunder: Sie zeigen, worauf sich auch traditionelle Unternehmen, Personalabteilungen und Standesvertretungen einstellen müssen. Und wie sagte schon Spinoza: Veränderung ist sch…. (aber der sass auch lang im Knast). Oder: Warum Tagelöhner Verwaltern überlegen sind.

Sonst noch neu

Die Greta-Grenze

Polarisierung ist eine Art Volkssport – vor allem zu Belustigung von Wahlkämpfern und Kommentatoren. Dabei lohnt es sich vor allem darauf zu achten, wer sich worüber polarisiert erregen kann.

Schnitzelpolitik: Im Frittierfett der Moral

Neuerdings wollen sich so manche in der Politik von der Moral verabschieden. Das liegt aber vermutlich daran, dass sie selbst nicht verstehen, wovon sie reden – und auch keinen Wert darauf legen, verstanden zu werden. Die Geste reicht.

Francis Fukuyama, Identity

Fukuyamas Analyse des Identitätsbedürfnisses findet auch keine neuen Lösungen. Das ist aber weniger sein Problem als das von Identitätspolitik.

Bubi braucht Beachtung

Sie betreiben irgendwelche Consulting- und Coaching-Buden und schaffen es manchmal vorübergehend, die Verachtung, die ihnen entgegenschlägt, als Relevanz auszugeben.
