Now that Google has breathed new life into the idea of having access to your favorite web applications offline as well as online, it has started to get me thinking of another potential benefit. We are now used to the idea of accessing our emails, calendar entries, to-dos, contacts, pictures, videos, and various other data formats in an online space. My biggest concern with putting everything in the hands of third party web applications is what happens if those companies die off. How easy will it be to export your precious data and import them into other web applications? That is something to think about as we all move forward.
