“Data Portability is not about ‘Web 2.0′ – it’s about any web-based
service. A typical user might use CNN, Yahoo Mail, Facebook, AIM, their
cell phone and their PC or Laptop. That’s a lot of apps. Imagine the
possibilities of having them sync some aspects of your data.”
—Chris Saad, posting on his blog after announcing funding for a company he advises about why data portability is not just for geeks.
