Microsoft joins DataPortability.org

Read/WriteWeb:

Chris Saad, Chairman of the Data Portability Working Group, confirmed to me this morning that Microsoft's David Treadwell, a VP at Windows Live,will be joining the organization. Microsoft is expected to make a formal announcement in the coming days. News first leaked out via a shadowy post at Computerworld this morning.

Things are moving fast, at least in terms of support of the initiative. Next: results.
