MyByo: your biography page

the one and only

About.me was not always here. I remember ASL.to; a simple webpage service where you stated your Age, Sex and Location. Oh, and you could enrich your nickname with a pic of your dog. Nothing much changed since then… 🙂

MyByo is an attempt to create a semantic bio for yourself. A wikipedia of biographies that put owners in control of their page. It’s linked to your digital ID so you can take control of what you want people to see. It will be encourages by governments and internet services that you maintain this page yourself. When people want to refer to you in a digital context, this will use this preferred link that automatically evolves as you grow older. You will have a public MyByo and a private one. You can edit and enhance your MyByo. By connecting MyByo to other services, you can choose to update it automatically. You can also set reminders every few years to update it when you’re not so active online.

MyByo guarantees you your digital biography is always up-to-date and current. If I add the TheWriteID aspect again you can use it to create variations and personas and even keep them for personal references per era.
