When you want to make a private picture or note available only to your friends, why do you hand it over to a multi-national corporation first?
The Mine! project is about equipping people with tools and functionality that will help them:
1. take charge of their data (content, relationships, transactions, knowledge),
2. arrange (analyse, manipulate, combine, mash-up) it according to their needs and preferences and
3. share it on their own terms
4. whilst connected and networked on the web.
The Mine! aims to be an (infra)structure for other solutions – VRM (relationships with individuals and vendors, transactions), self-defined identity, authentication, data portability and hopefully many more.
