The Data Liberation Front

Previously, I noted that LifeStream helps you get back your captive data from sites like facebook and twitter. Now there is a movement inside google to help people get their data, aptly named the Data Liberation Front. Viva the liberation!

The Data Liberation Front is an engineering team at Google whose singular goal is to make it easier for users to move their data in and out of Google products. We do this because we believe that you should be able to export any data that you create in (or import into) a product. We help and consult other engineering teams within Google on how to “liberate” their products. This is our mission statement:

Users should be able to control the data they store in
any of Google’s products. Our team’s goal is to
make it easier for them to move data in and out.
