Big part of my new job is to make recommendations regarding which community initiatives Yahoo! should consider getting involved with. Given the recent attention received by the yet-to-be-defined DataPortability organization, it was only natural for it to come up in multiple conversations.
A few months ago I explained why I personally decided to leave the DataPortability group. Now I would like to explain why I am recommending Yahoo! to stay away as well. Obviously, I only mean to stay away from the organization, not the actual principal of openness and data sharing which are at the core of Y!OS.
