It's Your Data - You Should Be Able to Share It!

The ability to take the data that you upload on a website and use it elsewhere is a fundamental feature that is missing on many popular websites. Facebook for instance allows you to easily import all your address book contacts, but there is no means to export these same details. Yahoo Mail lets you export your e-mail messages but only if you subscribe to their premium mail package. Flickr provides lots of tools for uploading multiple photos at a time, let third-party tools are needed to copy the same photos elsewhere. There should be a middle ground that allows your stuff to be easily mixed and shared.

Dataportability.org is a new resource point that discusses the standards, tools, arguments and initiatives that are shaping this debate.
