Proposal for Maid Safe App - Tryst, a permanent, yet private record of meetings.
Problem it solves: Anywhere where people get together and want to record permanent private information about their meeting (and that it did indeed occur), where they might have to later refer to or rely on evidence of the meeting having occurred.
The meeting consists of the following data elements:
- agreed public notes
Once the meeting has been agreed to by all parties, then:
- the meeting is recorded forever to the system and cannot be changed, even by attendees.
- Any attendee (and only attendees) of the meeting can then read the details of the meeting at any time.
- An attendee can choose to make a meeting ‘public’ if n of m attendees agree. (not sure if this is a good idea?)
- A user can see a history of all the meetings they have attended in a ‘timeline’ view.
Use cases: Doctor/patient, Lawyer/Client, Political activist/journalist, Company Board meetings, politicians meeting with advisers.
I envision an app where each user authenticates to the launcher and then provides Tryst with a private token known to all meeting attendees (it could be as simple as a random number written on the whiteboard). During the meeting attendees would be able to ‘chat’ and take public and private notes. At the end, a formal meeting minutes object would created and agreed to by all parties. This could then be stored as encrypted immutable data onto the network, with the decryption keys stored as structured data object for each attendee. (This how I understand how to implement, but there are probably better ways).
I’d welcome feedback on the proposal and would be interested in working with others to make it happen.
