Data Portability: An Idea Made to Stick

Chris Messina has a post worth reading about the whole subject of Data Portability. Though it is a complex new topic that demands a longer and more thoughtful post, the one point he and Chris Saad agree on is that the meme is here to stay. As the wonderful book Made to Stick would characterize it, “data portability” is a highly sticky idea. It’s not going away anytime soon.

(On a side note, I’m desparately seeking time to do a longer post about Made to Stick, which every technology communicator should not just read but memorize. It was the inspiration for the presentation I gave at Internet Identity Workshop today which used no slides at all. Bill Coleman insisted Paul Trevithick read it. Paul insisted I read it. I insist you read it. ’nuff said.)
