The guardian has an article about "cload computing":

"One reason you should not use web applications to do your computing is that you lose control," he said. "It's just as bad as using a proprietary program. Do your own computing on your own computer with your copy of a freedom-respecting program. If you use a proprietary program or somebody else's web server, you're defenceless. You're putty in the hands of whoever developed that software."

I also do not understand why so many people give away the control over their data. Especially as the prices of small USB storage is so low...

Let me know your opinions on this on discussion at
