User Scenario
1. The user feels the need to search for alternative ways to storage its online social and personal interactions.
2. Hears of Impreso.
3. Decides what information he wants to keep.
4. Save Page AS of the web interactions he want's to keep.
5. Zip the files.
5. Submit them through the impreso website.
6. Receives a ready to print pdf.

How it works: you save the html pages as, zip the files (images, scripts, etc) and submit it to a server which "cleans" the file by removing web 2.0 components (advertistement included) and reformats css. In exchange you get a beautiful pdf that can be storage as preferable (printing is encouraged).
