    1. i feel for for tool builders that are serious about building useful software interoperability can actually be a huge 00:45:22 spoon uh to their success um it'll make easier to acquire users it will make it easier to help users embed your own tool in their workflows um you may be also losing some users but 00:45:34 that's okay i guess because it'll create sustainable pressure to you for you to focus on an audience well and build really really useful services for them and if you do that they also won't leave as easily

      I agree. I think companies that allow their users to take their data and run when they want to just create trust. Gone are the days when users automatically thought companies had their best interests at heart, as compared with current-day surveillance capitalists.

    1. How to Export Your Content If you log into Graphite before August 15th, you can download each file in any of the available formats offered. If you'd like a bulk download, I recommend (for the technically inclined) using the exporter tool I created. For those less technically inclined, Blockstack may have some options for you. Remember, Graphite never owned your content. Never had control of your content. And that was the real power of its offering.

    1. data liberation is best provided through APIs, and data portability is best provided by building code using those APIs to perform cloud-to-cloud migration
    2. The data liberation effort focuses specifically on data that could hinder users from switching to another service or competing product—that is, data that users create in or import into Google products
    3. At Google, our attitude has always been that users should be able to control the data they store in any of our products, and that means that they should be able to get their data out of any product. Period. There should be no additional monetary cost to do so, and perhaps most importantly, the amount of effort required to get the data out should be constant, regardless of the amount of data. Individually downloading a dozen photos is no big inconvenience, but what if a user had to download 5,000 photos, one at a time, to get them out of an application? That could take weeks of their time.

    1. Users have the right to obtain (in a machine readable format) their personal data for the purpose of transferring it from one controller to another, without being prevented from doing so by the data processor.
    2. Users have the right to access their personal data and information about how their personal data is being processed. If the user requests it, data controllers must provide an overview of the categories of data being processed, a copy of the actual data and details about the processing. The details should include the purpose, how the data was acquired and with whom it was shared.
    3. The Right to access is closely linked to the Right to data portability, but these two rights are not the same.
