Many people are scared because Microsoft bought GitHub. I wonder why people are so shocked now. Github is just another cloud-thingy and cloud means: "it's just the computer of someone else". If "someone else" will shutdown or wipe his computer, then we better have backups. Having this in our minds I would say that it's time to make (auto)backups. I wrote this little ruby-script that clones all public repositories of a user into a directory.
