Editorial Now that everything is moving to the cloud internet, you might think that data loss is a thing of the past. Sadly, as the past few months have taught us, this actually isn't true; we first had the Microsoft/Danger disaster, and now we have Palm and Sprint facing a class-action lawsuit over data loss for webOS phones.

While working on a Django app and it smelled really bad. I wished, at that moment, that I had had the foresight to register a Twitter account so that I could share it with my followers. But by the time I had half-registered with them, the aura of the experience had faded.


But think. That twit could have saved a generation of future archeologists trying to understand the absurd life of mankind in the 2000s.

Thereby contributing to unemployment in their era. The intricate interaction of human flatulence, and the flapping of butterflies' wings, upon the tapestry of time is difficult to fathom.
