This paper proposes some ideas on the evolution of control towards trust in communities that use grid technology. It takes the viewpoint that members within a grid-based community require a trust framework that brings together and takes into account both social and technological approaches to trust. It also emphasises the importance of the simultaneous analysis of control and trust. Control is examined as a multi-dimensional phenomenon that includes personal, formal and informal scopes. The analysis of trust appeals to its cognitive and affective dimensions. Three possible scenarios of control towards trust evolution include linear control towards trust development, reputation shift and trust leap. They are to be further examined in terms of their practical applicability and conceptual contribution.
