Subject: Re: [xdi] Your statement about XDI for PDJ


I love the page you added at http://wiki.oasis-open.org/xdi/XdiPdecArticle

Here's my feature quote that I just added there:

"My single favorite XDI feature is link contracts. Few people understand how hard the problem of portable permissions is, i.e., how an authority for a set of data can create a set of permissions on that data that can be understood by anyone else, even when the data is moved from one service provider to another. The XDI globally addressable graph model for data is what makes link contracts possible, and it is the combination of global addressability and controllability that will finally bring us true data portability."

I think one of the great benefits is location independent data reference. As the world moves to more and more APIs and people's personal data being stored in more and more places, allowing programmers the ability to reference data without know the details of where and how it's stored is of great importance. Sophisticated programs will be simpler to code and that will make them possible.

Hello TC,

As I mentioned before, the next issue of the Personal Data Journal will have an article about XDI.

I'd like to invite all TC members to make a short statement about one specific feature of XDI that you like most!
I created the following page for this purpose (see "Sidebox 3"): http://wiki.oasis-open.org/xdi/XdiPdecArticle

You could either add it yourself, or just send it to me..

Also, if you have other suggestions for the article, let me know.
I'll try to have a draft version ready for review before the next TC call.
