Don't Let Twitter, Facebook, Google Be The Only Game In Town

Decent editorial by Anil Dash on keeping data "loosely coupled" to the dominant social networks of the day:

Anil Dash says people don't have to rely just on Twitter, Google and Facebook to relay information.

It picks up on a lot of what Dave Winer has been saying, and dovetails with my own rants on the state of "free" online services.

Feels like there's some pretty solid consensus on the matter. Hoping to see some interesting innovations in this space shortly.
