Could use some input on this. Would data URIs be useful for you in WriteFreely? Or not needed?

writefreely.org/issues/80

@writeas_dev Post text is stored on DB, right? As longtext or blob? In snap.is the images are stored on filesystem?
I think that storing data URIs inside longtext fields will hurt DB performance in comparison with a dedicated blob field or FS storage.

@Cochise Yep, stored in the DB as `text`: github.com/writeas/writefreely

For Snap.as images are stored on the filesystem / with an efficient delivery system. I agree data URIs aren't the best solution for photo hosting -- both for storage and for reading content (since the data can't be cached).
