Links?  Referral?

The article was mainly talking about being able to extract all of your 
data from a service, at least when it is dying.  Certainly the goal 
should be to be able to extract all data and metadata at any time, and 
to be able to upload that information to the same or a similar service 
later.  We do need standards for that kind of thing, although for some 
systems that will be tough as the data is so wrapped up in 
implementation details.

In the long run, and hopefully sooner, the solution should be something 
like a semantic RDF dump that is fully self describing (but better than 
the XML sense).  And of course we'll want feeds, updates, etc.  Google
