The Data Liberation Front


2 of 5 stars
What’s this?

“…an engineering team at Google whose singular goal is to make it easier for users to move their data in and out of Google products. We do this because we believe that any data that you create in (or import into) a product is your own. We help and consult other engineering teams within Google on how to ‘liberate’ their products.”



  1. Whoa! That logo is brutal!
    1s and 0s for knuckles! Breaking the chain of users and their products!
    If bad logo design is any indication of good engineering, we’ll see some great stuff from these folks.

    Better than Bing tho.

  2. Next logical step for Google: Don’t let the data just sit there, put it to work! For example, let the user opt-in to “share my data with selected Google partners”, and offer something in return. I bet a lot of companies would love to get their fingers on that data.

  3. woah yeh that logo is umm….. well i think it’s on a par with Bing, maybe it’s actually worse (putting the Google logo within that logo just brings the Google brand down). i like google concepts tho
