We (PersonalData . IO) are a non-profit based in Geneva (not part of the Libra Association). We would like to discuss the possibility of implementing in the MOVE language some protocols for doing personal data transfers, and particularly enforcing personal data rights. We think MOVE could be perfect in enabling trusted exchange around complex assets of yet-unknown type (beyond purely financial assets). Normally, a project like Google’s Data Transfer Project should cover this gap (see https://datatransferproject.dev/ for intent), but practical implementation has chosen to couple the semantics with the rest of the problem (authentication, security, etc).
MOVE could be a way to decouple these problems, and get quicker to a world where each of us is in control over their personal data.
Happy to talk more about the idea for those interested.

Your topic has interested me as a developer in Mauritius. Facebook seems business opportunity for many and as such developers needs to develop leadership as an additional skill to group their citizen and inform the business community of their own country about that opportunity.
I have started by creating a group on my Facebook page which numbers nearly 200 to date. People in Mauritius and worldwide have showed interest. Afterwards I have been granted trust level by this site as Promoter and this permit me to invite someone in the community. So I invited 2 interested friends to the community. But these 2 are a chinese and an American. I have created several post to encourage people in Mauritius to join Libra as developer while awaiting libra launch soon. I do think there is some work to be done to attract developers in your or my country and even worldwide. To be a developer need not be a programmer as I myself am not but cooperation with programmers is a good mix.
Personal Data. IO interest me.
