I just saw a link in the del.icio.us hot list that caught my attention called Data Portability, that bills itself as
the open standards stack of the ubiquitous sharing and remixing of data.
This all seems rather arbitrary in what is “open” that I am suspicious of a hidden agenda at play here.
I’m all for open standards, data portability and anyone who wants to advocate it, but advocacy of “open” should be just that — open and not so closed, arbitrary or apparently biased. (If it’s not biased then someone didn’t do their homework.) We have enough agenda disguised in open advocacy clothes already.
