Social Cisco

The New York Times reported that Cisco purchased the remaining assets of social networking pioneer Tribe.net. That much they got right. Further down they say

“Marc Canter, a former Tribe.net consultant who has created his own social networking firm, People Aggregator, was an early supporter of OpenID. “Humans are migratory beasts, and we do not want to re-enter our data every time we join a new site,” he said. “Users own their data and should be able to move it around freely.”

That’s been Marc’s mantra for years. I’m glad he’s finally being heard. On the other hand, they garbled PeopleAggregator and called it the name of his company. You’d think they’d get their facts straight. They’re the professionals, after all.
