blogware activism

Jeneane, thanks for noting my thoughts on emancipating content from blogware. I do think this is going to be a more pressing concern as more people blog for more kinds of purposes, including the physicians, engineers, etc. that Dave Winer mentioned. Perhaps an open letter is in order, from the blogging communities to the blogitects - Winer, Ev, et al - asking that they match their splendid gift of ease of use going in with equal ease upon exit. Right now, as Virgil would have it, facilis est descensus averni... If someone with technical skills could create a form/petition that could gather names, email addresses, etc., it might get their attention...just a thought...
