It’s anonymously analyzing data, and my humble opinion is that the risk is worth the reward. I definitely think it’s a good idea to back up your data from any Google service, and I particularly appreciate the Data Liberation Front project at Google: a bunch of engineers who are making it easier to do exactly that. Google has always been pretty good about providing ways to get stuff off Google. And their spirit of exportability is in exact alignment with the idea of a life story suitcase. So my opinion is, use Google’s great, easy-to-use, free tools, and also back your stuff up.

When you get some material up there, you can share it with everyone, and they can each get a copy if they like (by copying the pictures and comments to their own computer). You may find that in a social context, it can be a nice opportunity for people to come by and add their recollection, and that’s where it gets even more fun. One of the things social networks excel at is collaboration; they provide an excellent opportunity for family and friends to gather stories, and everyone can add their own thoughts.

This is the invitation of personal digital archaeology. To preserve, learn how to digitize and de-digitize, and have fun with it. It’s certainly been fun for me, and the greatest part can be when you have stories gathered together that you can share, and get peoples’ reaction. It may be pictures, written thoughts, a video or audio recording of a conversation or event, or anything else. Capturing can also be fun. As in, capturing the here and now. For extra credit, watch the movie Dead Poet’s Society and practice the principle of carpe diem (and bring a digital camera).
