The Virtual Rendezvous Foundation
At the heart of Virtual Rendezvous is a non-profit Foundation that fosters the design, development, and deployment of an infrastructure that underlies all relationship services. Based on the fundamental notions of identity, place, shared activity, relationship, and the aspects that make each unique, we submit a set of loosely coupled, interlocking standards to the IETF (Internet Engineering Task Force). We combine these with reference implementations of each notion that fit together into a platform for relationship management.
This platform, knitting together existing and future peer-to-peer networks, intends to scale to billions of users and devices. Only ongoing experimentation, evolution, and radical new designs from the community of individuals and companies supporting the standards make such broad and ambitious goals possible.
