Kudos to Six Apart for opening up the social graph

In case you haven’t already heard it elsewhere, Dave Recordon has announced that Six Apart is opening its social graph.

Kudos to Dave & the rest of the team at Six Apart for opening up the data silo.

There remain several access rights management issues around reusing one’s social graph, but getting the data out of the silo into user control is a critical first step towards more powerful VRM-style applications that leverage individual’s social networks.

It will be interesting to see how users and developers respond.
