Open Data and The OpenPhoto Project
All of us have content on various services and over time we stop using some of these. But what happens to our data? Often times we don't want to leave our data behind, rather we want to use another service. What does this mean 10 or 20 years into the future? More importantly, what if we could separate the data we input from the app we input it to? Making a user's data portable opens up new world of possibilities for the apps of tomorrow.
We're solving this problem specifically for photos by building an open source photo platform that lets users select where their photos and associated metadata is stored. Users grant the OpenPhoto software access to their data, not the other way around.
There are a handful of projects working together to solve this problem not just for photos but for all of the content we put online. You can find more about The OpenPhoto Project at http://theopenphotoproject.org.
