The quality of communication, in all its various forms, is heavily dependent on the appropriate medium, timing, and level of trust between parties. Protocol is a tool that helps you, and society at large, understand and share preferences�personal or professional protocol�to communicate more effectively. Protocol is a dynamic and syndicated contact sheet, seen most often as an email signature or status update; it also functions as an independent site. More specifically, we see it as a preference page to share how and where you want to be contacted. Soon you will be able to embed your protocol in your site of choice (hey about.me, flavours.me, linkedin.com and wordpress.com).
