Miller sharing Singly’s latest at Web 2.0 Summit — tune in at 4:40 p.m.
Singly co-founder and Cascade, Iowa resident Jeremie Miller will present the fruits of his company's latest labors today at the Web 2.0 Summit in San Francisco, and indications from both inside and outside the Singly camp are that Miller's talk could mark an important step in the direction of how people manage personal data online.

Miller's presentation, which will air at 4:40 p.m. CDT (see the Livestream feed below), is entitled "A Radical Vision for Life." According to an email yesterday from Singly's Lindsay Crittendon, the talk will outline the company's "vision for the future of personal data." As part of the presentation, Miller is slated to announce the release of v1.0 of the Singly platform. The platform, as we touched on in a story about Miller last month, helps users manage their online personal data, serving as a conduit for communication with the users' favorite social media outlets.
John Battelle of Searchblog published a post yesterday about the implications of a platform like Singly's. The post, which includes loads of insights from Singly co-founder Jason Cavnar, looks at Singly's efforts within the framework of Battelle's case that personal data needs to be better managed, both as a means of mitigating risk of negative consequences and in order to help harness the positive power of personal data.
For more from Battelle and Cavnar, check out yesterday's post on Searchblog, "A Big Issue: Taking control of your own identity and data — Singly founder responds." And for additional background on Miller and Singly, see SPN's previous story on the co-founder, "With Midwest mindset, Miller builds on passion for communication."
