Thank you, Robert

Thank you, Robert, for adding the human element that this new net world is craving. It’s so difficult to keep the small-town community feel that many seem to want when it needs to be spread over a surface the size of our globe. Articles like this help us to see the person behind to headlines, to see the flaws yet not diminish the respect earned. You have such a talent for this, for humanizing, yet not tarnishing, the icons we create.

Google and Facebook Join DataPortability.org

Things are turning in a good direction with the participation of Google and Facebook in the Dataportability project. With Plaxo, these are three of the most used sites where people are depositing contact information, events, favorite things – the kind of data you would share with “friends”. Having to re-enter this info is time-consuming, and checking that everything is correct is annoying. Being able to take a copy of all this data and paste it into another site will be a welcome relief – as long as I’m the one doing it, and I’m sure of the security where it’s going.
