personal cloud
An interesting solution is to self host your own server. Not in a tech way, with an SSH command line terminal, but with a high level of abstraction that turns the server into a main stream device, into a personal cloud.

You can check http://cozy.io/, a personal Cloud you can host, hack and delete that my team and I are developping.

Here is the Demo, I would love to hear your feedbacks,

Cheers !

The Digital Self and the Future of Data Management
Great post, Frank. Your prediction around services for the digital self in which "providers will help individuals search, organize and manage across many digital-self services, not just one" really hit home for us. Our company, Synata, fits into that stage so we're all too familiar with the data management issues consumers are having.

We wrote a short commentary about your report. Check it out: http://goo.gl/JCVKME

It will be interesting to how data will be managed in the future. Social media, online shopping, email, and anything else online stores data about people. It will be interesting to see how all of that is managed or not managed by individuals.

re: How Will You Manage Your Digital Self?
Kind of a big leap to say "... consumers moved from managing their content based on the device to a cloud-based model where the device didn't matter..." That should read "...some consumers moved," but the reality is that MOST consumers are still in hybrid mode with lots of stuff on a mix of devices (including thumb drives and backup devices) as well as lots of stuff now in the cloud. I think you're vision for digital self service and curated ecosystems have to include a way to address on-device "stuff" and accept there will continue to be a desire to keep things on device so they can be shared offline. This could be as simple as cloud-based services with offline sync.

Bottom line: something that address these challenges only in the cloud will always be an incomplete option for the real consumer audience.

Small business owners, we have contact, generate a lot of information in social networks and often fail to control all the consequence of it. Gaeta, Sergio ERP Software Consultant in http://www.sbg.com.br

Digital business isn't about changing code; it's about changing what legacy sales, distribution, customer service, and product groups do in the new digital age. It's about bringing big data analytics, mobile, social, marketing automation, cloud computing, and the app economy together to launch new products and services. We're seeing new titles in this digital revolution, new responsibilities, new business models, and major shifts in technology spending.
