Back up your information in Google — Google Takeout

Wor­ried about the amount of inform­a­tion you have stored in Google ser­vices? Fear not. Just launched today is Google Takeout — which allows you to take a loc­al backup of (so far, some of) the inform­a­tion stored in sev­er­al of the Google ser­vices.

It’s not yet full–featured: it only allows backup from Google Buzz, Con­tact and Circles, Picasa Web Albums and from your Google pro­file. But the Data Lib­er­a­tion Front prom­ise to add the abil­ity to back up oth­er Google ser­vices over time.

This is their blog post announ­cing the ser­vice. Remem­ber: backup early, backup often.
