Not entirely related but I read a blog post after GUADEC this year
saying that Gnome should start a web services portal based on Free
Software. So people could subscribe for $5 a month and get some
webspace, blog, photo storage, calendar, mail etc etc and the proceeds
would go back into the Gnome Foundation.

And of course it would solve this nagging issue about
Google/Flickr/Yahoo/eBay holding all of our data plus it would be a
boost to Free Software.

Great idea, but I don't see it happening anytime soon as there are so
many other things to do.
