At last year’s Web 2.0, a key question was raised that remains unanswered: who owns our data? As we increasingly build sophisticated relationships with massive platforms like eBay, Yahoo, and Amazon, what rights do we as consumers and entrepreneurs have to access and profit from the information we create as we interact with web-based applications? So far, the answers are murky. If data is the intel inside, will the web ultimately begin to adopt the closed models of cable and cellular service providers?
