Project Voldemort at Gilt Groupe: When Failure Isn't an Option [slides]
Geir Magnusson explains how Gilt Groupe is using Project Voldemort to scale out their e-commerce transactional system. The initial SQL solution had to be replaced because it could not handle the transactional spikes the site is experiencing daily due to its particular way of selling their inventory: each day at noon. Magnusson explains why they chose Voldemort and talks about the architecture.

Convergence
'Convergence is a secure replacement for the Certificate Authority System. Rather than employing a traditionally hard-coded list of immutable CAs, Convergence allows you to configure a dynamic set of Notaries which use network perspective to validate your communication.
Convergence allows you to choose who you want to trust, rather than having someone else's decision forced on you. You can revise your trust decisions at any time, so that you're not locked in to trusting anyone for longer than you want.'

The Monkeysphere Project
OpenPGP's web of trust extending further. 'Everyone who has used a web browser has been interrupted by the "Are you sure you want to connect?" warning message, which occurs when the browser finds the site's certificate unacceptable. But web browser vendors (e.g. Microsoft or Mozilla) should not be responsible for determining whom (or what) the user trusts to certify the authenticity of a website, or the identity of another user online. The user herself should have the final say, and designation of trust should be done on the basis of human interaction. The Monkeysphere project aims to make that possibility a reality.'
