Data Portability – The First Sign of Web 3.0

Thursday, January 17, 2008
The way 3rd party application is increasing day by day, it has brought a concern for many to a question – what happens when these applications fail to respond and your effort to embed your website/blog with 3rd party application is not called forth when you try to open? It means loss of data that you have gathered by virtue of your hard work.

However one of the missions of web 3.0 is to overcome this problem. Dataportability is the outcome of such concern which aims at pulling all existing technologies and initiatives in context to create a reference design for end-to-end Data Portability. View the Roadmap.

The main philosophy behind the data portability is that photos, videos and other forms of personal data we upload to various social sites such as Facebook, MySpace, Google Reader, etc. 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 including RDF, RSS, APML, OpenID, OPML etc., we users simply need a complete reference design to put the pieces together.

Thus, sharing is caring is the mission of web 3.0 which has already evolved into being.
