Messenger Connect: Making Your Data More Portable While Retaining Control Over Its Use
From Angus Logan, the Windows Live blog:
We believe that you should be able to choose to take your Windows Live data with you when you travel the web. Messenger Connect allows you to do that by providing a way to sign in to third party web and client applications using your Windows Live ID. Messenger Connect allows you to bring your Windows Live profile and contacts with you; easily share with your friends and enable Windows Live Messenger-based chat within third party applications; and access your photos, calendar, and more.
In order to enable third party applications to â€˜connect' and interact with Windows Live accounts, we needed to design to help to ensure that customers' data is protected and accessed in a manner consistent with customers' expectations and desires, as well as enable great partner experiences.
Owning your data. Interesting concept.
