I tend to like to be behind a camera instead of in front of it, but I felt that the issue of data portability was important enough to step up and lead a discussion at SocialMedia Camp.
The semantic web can fix the issue of data portability in social media. How? By using associations to group different profiles together. It also allows people to own their data instead of being at the mercy of every social network.
My apologies for the technical difficulties. Many thanks to Paul Walhus for filming, Juan Sequeda for engaging the dialog, Whurley for fixing my internets, and Giovanni Gallucci for buying me some time while i figured things out.
