allowing is different from helping, dammit. data portability is important. companies like microsoft and facebook lock in their users. companies like google don't. you know you're doing it right when your customers stay with you even when you make it easy for them not to.

Philipp, as with all Blogspot blogs, the feed URL is either:

http://dataliberation.blogspot.com/atom.xml
or
http://dataliberation.blogspot.com/feeds/posts/default

Which in turn redirects to:
http://feeds.feedburner.com/blogspot/qOQU

Thanks! What does the first post show? I ran the Google Blogs 'n More crawler over it but I'm getting an empty post. Or does it show empty in the original too?

It's a post titled "Welcome to the Data Liberation Front" which begins...

<< I remember the first time I heard Google's CEO Eric Schmidt speak back in 2004. He wrapped up his talk to employees by clearly stating that Google didn't lock its users in. He stressed that we didn't want people to use our products solely because they can't get their data out to switch to a competing service. >>
