Personal Data Vault

Adam Curry, Weblog, Feb 24, 2012
Commentary by Stephen Downes

I like the phrasing - 'data vault' - and agree that this is an idea whose time has come. It was always a big part of any PLE concept I've tried to advance (it was very hard to explain to people, "no, I want it on the desktop, not in the cloud" ... "but why?" ... "because people should keep their own data" ... "but they can keep it on the web" ... etc. - but the point is, each person should have his or her personal data vault which they can keep at home and access anywhere, so that some company come along and sell all the data to the highest bidder. What would I keep in it, besides music, documents and media? My browsing history, my address book, my financial records, health and education information, to name just a few.
