Poyozo brings personal data “home”


Poyozo | Kickstarter from Brennan Moore on Vimeo.

Many of us are bothered by the conflict
between wanting to take advantage of web services for the management of
personal data and our desire to have all of this data on a local drive.
Poyozo is a new service that scrapes personal data and returns it
“home.”

Also interesting is the pitch Poyozo is making. Why do
you want to have all your personal data stored locally, in an easily
queried database? Because your data contains information about yourself
that you want to know: thoughts you may have forgotten and patterns you
can’t see . Says Brennan Moore in the kickstarter video below, Poyozo
offers “automatic life tracking and simple visualizations you can use
every day.”

    Gary Wolf: I love the photo you posted in 2008 of the “Walled Garden”. I’m wondering if I can get your permission to use it for my book?
