微软加入 DataPortability.org

今早有消息称:微软,和 Google, Facebook, 和 Plaxo,将一起加入 DataPortability.Org 工作组,由 Windows Live 平台公司副总裁 David Treadwell 负责。DataPortability.Org 开始寻找各类不同的网络应用之间数据共享的解决方案。以下是他们的“哲学和使命”:

MissionPhilosophy As users, our identity, photos, videos and other forms of personal data should be discoverable by, and shared between our chosen (and trusted) tools or vendors. We need a DHCP for Identity. A distributed File System for data. The technologies already exist, we simply need a complete reference design to put the pieces together.

Mission Mission To put all existing technologies and initiatives in context to create a reference design for end-to-end Data Portability. To promote that design to the developer, vendor and end-user community.

这令那些认为微软一直以来都是反对开放的人非常意外,事实上,微软,尤其是 Windows Live 一直都在努力构建一个开放的平台,比如提供大量的 API 来访问 Windows Live 的数据,将来会有更多 API 将推出。我们也会在今后更加关注这方面的新闻。
