But what do RSS, Atom, OPML and web services stand for? This is
actually the problem that the web 2.0 has already solved. Today, if
you are a NetVibes user for example, you can take out your data easily
and migrate to, say Google Reader, instantly. I love web 2.0 and I
agree with Boris, this acquisitions are the eventual results of
popularity, you always have the possibility to opt out.


Disclaimer: besides my other occupations (writer at ReadWriteWeb,
evangelist at Hakia) I'm an entrepreneur too - http://grou.ps/ - we
are an aggregator and we stand on the shoulders of other service
providers; that's the beauty of web 2.0
