    19. RSS/Atom feeds The true data portability success story
    20. You can integrate thousands of data sources into new applications
    21. You can simply chain data sources together so the sum is more valuable than its parts
    22. You can create pluggable tools for your users
    23. The heart of RSS success <ul><li>No fixed URIs, resource names or hierarchies </li></ul><ul><li>No coupling to a fixed authorization method </li></ul><ul><li>Simple discovery at site/url level </li></ul><ul><li>The data is in a standard format </li></ul><ul><li>It has standard MIME types </li></ul>
    24. Portability Open stack API’s

    32. The Future
    33. We don’t really own data in the same way we own property
    34. An old twitter Heading over to the Eagle for something to eat with Madgex folk 12:35 AM Oct 9 th 2008 The value of most data decays over time
    35. Data can be replicated and its ownership diluted or lost
