Re. the blog post at marco.org: While he's right, it's bizarre (or, well, just laughably incorrect) that he's lauding Tumblr as an example of a cloud service that does things "right".

Tumblr might let you put pretty colours on your blog, but it give you no way to export your posts... and, more importantly, no way of exporting community responses to your posts. Tumblr also doesn't support things like pingbacks that let blogs do cross-platform communications. That's indicative of some pretty serious single-service lock-in, IMO.

So Tumblr is good at identity but not data, Google is good at data but not identity. Hrm...
