"The Personal Data Ecosystem Consortium believes the individual user is the only integration point for data from different sources.
We are focused on to key things to help make this happen
1) Fostering the development of market places and understanding of business modles where individual users are involved in transactions related to their data and personal information.
2) Supporting the emergence of open standards, Open API's and interoperability for user data and accessing the data.
We are proactively growing communities amongst and between take holder groups to make the vision real.
We are a working group of Identity Commons - the club house for efforts diverse focused on user-centric identity.
