On Fully Distributing the Social Network

David Wiley, iterating toward openness, Mar 07, 2008
Commentary by Stephen Downes

David Wiley comes up with an approach to social networking I fully support. "Justin and I asked each other, instead of making it easier to get our data out of those silos, why trap our data in those silos in the first place? Let's just bypass the whole problem. In the same way that we publish our research results on our own blogs instead of having the results hijacked by (published in) peer-reviewed journals, let's take the same approach with our identities and social networks." Don't bother taking it to the social network portability people, though; I've tried.
