Please Don’t Free My Data
One of the guiding principles of ClosedPrivate is secrecy. No matter what, we won’t let you have access to your data, or anyone elses. We promise. We’ve spent many minutes figuring out the best approaches to this and when we actually roll out the spec (in private, of course) we’ll make sure we don’t do a good job of documenting how to not get access to your data.
Tim O’Reilly gets it and he calls out OpenSocial on their shortcomings around data. We love Tim but we know he’d hate ClosedPrivate due to his misguided view that it’s all about the data. Well, we didn’t ask him to be part of the club.
