JTAER special issue on trust and trust management

The Open Access Journal of Theoretical and Applied Electronic Commerce Research has just published a special issue on trust and trust management (volume 5, issue 2, 2010), with Audun Jøsang and Glenn Bewsell as guest editors. While I am of course particularly happy that our paper on trust management for inter-enterprise collaborations appears there (see my earlier summary on what we do at the CINCO group), there are other reasons to go check out the issue too:

I will now go celebrate my momentary victory over writing – by reading.
