Somebody who creates series of animated GIFs and computer-aided artwork, and who also operated a blog for the last 14 years can be called anything BUT not tech-savvy.
I am not "gloating" over his loss, however I think that:
1. It might not be a loss after all (the data is most likely still there somewhere)
2. It's too early to yell "google ate my homework" until Google definitely rules that the data is lost
3. Having one instance of your data only and not thinking about the possible consequences for 14 years is inexcusable.
