Okay so I have your attention. Actually google has done something very meaningful for all of us by creating the inactive account manager. You can register with google using this tool and after your account is inactive for a specified period you can specify if folks should be notified and also whether they should be provided with aspects of your data. You are notified too when you are nearing your inactivity limit. It is explained very well in this public policy statement. Thanks Amit Singhal for bringing this to my attention through your google blog post.
I will probably starting a new blog in a few days that focuses primarily on kickstarter, a fascinating phenomenon. Later!
