You gotta be careful what you wish for: data portability group

I just read about the Data Portability group, or rather just watched the video (funky music!) on Read/Write web. Philosophy, like explained on http://dataportability.org/

Philosophy As users, our identity, photos, videos and other forms of personal data should be discoverable by, and shared between our chosen (and trusted) tools or vendors. We need a DHCP for Identity. A distributed File System for data. The technologies already exist, we simply need a complete reference design to put the pieces together.

Mission To put all existing technologies and initiatives in context to create a reference design for end-to-end Data Portability. To promote that design to the developer, vendor and end-user community.

A year ago, I posted about Fighting read/write web fatique. So, that's what all the traffic on my blog was about ;) (as if...)
