Interesting initiative of a group inside Google called: The Data Liberation Front

Their goal is to support and promote an easy move of data from and to Google systems.

Users own the data they store in any of Google’s products.
Our team’s goal is to give users greater control by making it
easier for them to move data in and out.

This is an intriguing provocation as in these days a lot have been written about privacy, ownership and personal backups of user’s data stored in important social networks (starting from the ubiquitous Facebook).

Not clear though what’s up with possible copies of my data if I get them out of Google 🙂
