MySpace letting users' info roam

Posted by Brier Dudley

Finally, MySpace has announced the data portability project that its CTO, Aber Whitcomb, was talking up in March, when he was in Seattle for a developer conference hosted by the company's Pioneer Square engineering office.

The initial effort lets users share info like photos and friends with other networked sites like Yahoo, Twitter, eBay and MySpace corporate cousin Photobucket.

No wonder the Los Angeles-based News Corp. venture is hiring so many engineers up here, to build not only site features but cool tools for developers.
