  [vote for,

a way to consolidate all of my personal information... basically i don't want to have to change my mailing address every time I move... its a pain in the ass... i would like, preferably web based, a storage locker for all of information..

companies would then parnter and license the technology... kind of branching off of the current trend of online bill presentment...

aggregates info to access information ranging from passwords to news and wireless enalbes them.. but not close enough [efader, Jan 03 2000, last modified Oct 17 2004]

a site that is closest to my above rant.. they are planning on doing that very idea but it looks far away... they will auto fill web forms etc... [efader, Jan 03 2000, last modified Oct 17 2004]

Dutch "digital vault" http://catless.ncl....ks/21.33.html#subj4
Basically similar idea: government-run "vault" for personal information [wiml, Jan 03 2000, last modified Oct 17 2004]


       I would want to grant access to the locker only to those people and companies I choose, and ensure that the companies I lend my information to are forbidden to pass along access to my locker without permission. The USPS can look at my new address all they want, but I don't want my SSN available for public viewing. Obviously.

       [+] Although this has been baked a hundred times over in the last 18 years this never gets old. It seems like a new data storage company pops up every 6 months and the masses come to sign up.
