The DataPortability Project is a group created to promote the idea that individuals have control over their data by determing how they can use it and who can use it. This includes access to data that is under the control of another entity.

  • Open Source solutions are preferred to closed source proprietary solutions
  • Bottom-up distributed solutions are preferred to top down centralized solutions
