>I'm always interested in hearing feedback about how to make the design better, and I'm very passionate about designing cloud services that provides much more user autonomy than the current common practice, while also providing a lot of user convenience that makes so many cloud services appealing.
One possibility would be to encrypt the data locally and store them encrypted in the cloud. This would make sure that only the user can read the data. Of course this would add some extra work for the user: Distribute the key on all clients and take care of the key. But I think it would be good to have this possibility at least as an option for people who want real privacy while using the cloud.
