Flickr as a model for data access and ownership

“The ability to get out the data you put in is the bare minimum. All of it, at high fidelity, in a reasonable amount of time. The bare minimum that you should be building, bare minimum that you should be using, and absolutely the bare minimum you should be looking for in tools you allow and encourage people who aren’t builders to use.”
