Presentation Slide For IT Student - Data Liberation Front

Data Liberation Front

We insert our data in 3rd party service
For eg: email, documents and pictures
As our data grows we become tied to 3rd party service

Imagine this, thousands of emails in your mailbox but don't like the service.
If you switch the mail provider you lose access to thousands of emails
Else stuck with the bad provider
Its just like not being able to take your belongings from the apartment you have leased

Data Liberation Front


Users should be able to control the data they store in any of Google's products.
Goal is to make it easier to move data in and out.
Designed to help you liberate your data from any Google service with as little pain as possible
You're not locked into Gmail, for example, just because all your old email is there.

Three questions before starting to use a product that will store their data:
Can I get my data out in an open, interoperable, portable format?
How much is it going to cost to get my data out?
How much of my time is it going to take to get my data out?
The ideal answers to these questions are:
Yes.
Nothing more than I'm already paying.
As little as possible.

Currently supports export of data in:
Buzz
Contacts
Google+ Stream
Picasa Web Albums
Profiles
Voice

Data Liberation Front
BOD, Eric Schmidt at that time CEO of Google
