A Personal Data Service (PDS) that let's you control how your personal data is shared with friends and organizations you trust.

The UI of a PDS displays cards, apps and people. The examples of cards (e.g. SONY) and apps (e.g. Payment Cards) shown above are just to illustrate the idea.

  • The cards shown in green above represent a relationship between the user and an external site or business. The relationship includes a bi-directional data connection that shares and synchronizes a set of attributes between the site and the user's PDS. This set is a site-specific subset of the user's attributes.
  • The profiles shown in yellow circles above represent a relationship between the user and another person. The relationship includes a bi-directional data connection that shares and synchronizes a set of attributes representing a friend (e.g. Bob in his own PDS) and the user.
  • The blue boxes represent built-in or add-on apps that have access to the local storage and update and/or add value to what's there irrespective of any particular relationship connection.
  • Data Export. Since this is your data, whether you are self-hosting a Higgins PDS server or relying on a PDS operator, you can export it to RDF files whenever you like
