  1. ASCII by Jason Scott / A Valentine from Archive Team

    Surprise! Yahoo is deleting even *more* user-created content. This time Yahoo Video. It’s like Yahoo! doesn’t feel hated enough yet. But I keep loving Archive Team more. (via Tom Taylor)

  2. Photo loss blogger to Flickr: You’re f*cking kidding • The Register

    In case you need even more reasons why trusting your stuff to even the most well-meaning third-party services is only as good as their ability to never, ever make a mistake. (via Lee)

  3. BackupMyTweets Home: Backup Your Twitter Account

    I suppose backing one bit of the cloud up to another unaccountable, third-party bit of it is better than nothing, but…

  4. Deathwatch - Archiveteam

    “a central indicator of websites and networks that are shutting down, or to serve as an indicator of what happened to particular sites that shut down quickly.” (via Haddock)

  5. ASCII by Jason Scott / Geocities: Lessons So Far

    Not just for the good stuff about archiving Geocities, but also about the history of the site and its structure. (via Waxy)

  6. Video Game Downloads on FileFront

    Another site wiping oodles (apparently 48 terabytes) of user-generated/uploaded content. The “cloud” is the future you know. (via Waxy)

  7. Jacobian’s jellyroll at master - GitHub

    “You keep personal data in all sorts of places on the internets. Jellyroll brings them together onto your own site.” Sounds good, but haven’t tried it. (via Blech)

  8. Husk.org. chaff. Aggregation and the Edge.

    “Is there a space for a piece of user-installable software, like Movable Type or Wordpress, that aggregates their data from sites across the web, and then presents it as a site?” Yes. Maybe even a WordPress plugin…?

  9. Adactio: Journal—Magnoliloss

    On backing up his Magnolia links and wondering how to back up the rest of his distributed online life. (via Blech)

  10. Ma.gnolia Suffers Major Data Loss, Site Taken Offline | Epicenter from Wired.com

    Another week another case of people losing data they’ve entrusted to a hosted service. (via Lee)

  11. ASCII by Jason Scott / FUCK THE CLOUD

    A follow-up to the previous link on why keeping your stuff on servers run by other companies is a recipe for trouble. I try to avoid this but some things, like Flickr, make me nervous. (via Blech)

  12. ASCII by Jason Scott / Eviction, or the Coming Datapocalypse

    Catching up on stuff… AOL Hometown shut down and wiped all its users’ sites with four weeks’ notice. It’s bad enough when chunks of the web disappear, but worse like this. (via Simon Willison)

  13. LifeStreamBackup.com

    Launching soon, a backup for Flickr and weblogs. Google Docs, Twitter, YouTube and Facebook backup promised. As I said earlier, all these sites should offer this service by default. (via Blech)

  14. Google Open Source Blog: Google Blog Converters 1.0 Released

    Excellent - scripts to convert between Blogger, LiveJournal, MovableType and WordPress. I reckon every single online service should have an “Export” button and nag you if you haven’t backed-up in a while. (via Tom Taylor)

  15. Slashdot | Why Mirroring Is Not a Backup Solution

    And why most of us entrusting our creative output to third-party sites is a bad idea. (via Lee)
