The Foundry Group said on its blog that it invested in Singly, a San Francisco company making personal data more accessible to developers. No terms were disclosed.
“With Singly, developers can skip the hassle of building custom code and data connectors for each service they support,” wrote Managing Director Jason Mendelson.
It is an enormous opportunity that extends beyond social data as wireless service providers, credit card companies, automobile manufacturers and utilities open up people’s data for reuse, he wrote.
