against outsourcing


Yes! Today Sebastian wrote about the fact that many Bloggers are “outsourcing” their media content, for example photos to flickr. He has the same opinion about that as I have:


“Also ich hab gern alles auf meinem eigenen Server und gebe da ungern was von ab. Allein schon wegen der Langzeitarchivierung. Angenommen, ich poste nun alle meine Fotos bei Flickr. Und irgendwann wird das aufgekauft oder geschlossen. Was ist dann mit meinen Fotos? Weg. Bei nem eigenen Server bin ich dafür selbst verantwortlich und kann dafür sorgen, dass da nix wegkommt.”


I cannot understand why everybody is so excited about flickr and furl and stuff. – Like Sebastian I want to know where my stuff is located and what happens to it. I don’t want to get dependant of such services. As long as no technical or practical reasons clearly speak for these servives I don’t get it why I shall use it.

    ACK 🙂

    That’s one of the reasons I have rented my own server..

    but one problem is, that schrankmonster tends to get “out of shape” … it’s obviously a fact that not everywhere “size matters”…
