Data Portability, Facebook, & Filmmaker

Filmmaker has a post on Lance Weiler's upcoming article on data portability.  I have been hungering for this one for a long time now.  Data portability's a key issue for all of us.  It would have been on my list of what I want our film culture to be but I thought it was an issue or practicality more than a way of being.  Open source practices and general transparency in actions and practices is something though that is essential to a truly free film culture and it definitely should have been on my list (I have now added it).  What else did I forget?

Scott's post goes on to discuss Facebook's policy of dropping the accounts of those who have grown too large.  It's an irksome situation and something to be aware of.  Check it out.
