It feels like the broader web is currently rediscovering the impermanence of the siloed web (Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, et al.). Ross's article does the best job of articulating how a lot of people are thinking (and touching on some key stumbling blocks in the process). Plus, I just really love the way this paragraph is phrased (emphasis mine):
A few months later, I joined Twitter. I tweeted about 9,500 times, and you can read them all there today. Will we be able to read them in 25 years? Doubtful. I downloaded my archive before I left, and I might rerecord the greatest hits, but the original masters belong to the label.
