Data Liberation

After I got burned with Yahoo, I appreciate the move by Google about data liberation (quote: "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.")

While for me is not enough to put my precious data (photo gallery) on their servers (Picasaweb, where I don't like the interface), I think this is definitely a step forward and a model to follow (yeah, I am still looking for a self hosted gallery solution and already have >1K new images waiting to be shared with the world).
