This is going to be interesting.

Check out the proposal to create an internet connection where YOU manage the information, rather than having it stolen under the pretext of an agreement.

Would that make a difference in an age where only a few password hacks give the hacker a wealth of information from social media?

But note the catch: anonymity will once again be hard to get.


The user can store practically any data they want in the POD, including photographs, videos, and fitness tracker data. The data can then be shared with apps and services of the user's choosing, as well as other people.

As the data is also stored in a POD under the user's control, and not by other companies, there is no need to synchronize data if it is shared with multiple apps, as the same data source is used across the board.

The POD is also being touted as a method of authentication, along the lines as logging in with a Facebook account to another services' website. The ownership of a POD will apparently provide third-parties with enough proof that the user is who they say they are.






As long as the left uses data attacks to attack user's employment, social networks, and community contacts with threats and takedowns, anonymity will be a necessary feature for many of us. How we get there is the question.
