This is long time due !
Following up with my previous blog post I have started a Decentralization Mailing list.
The goal of this mailing list is to discuss technologies related to data decentralization in Mozilla projects - and in particular in the ones we work at in the Cloud Services team (but it can go beyond of course)
A few topic examples that people brought up:
- Could remoteStorage be used with Firefox Account to build Firefox OS apps where people can store their own data ?
- Can Firefox Sync use a remoteStorage backend ?
- Why can't I run a simple "apt-get install firefox-sync" and host my own server ?
- What about peer-to-peer ? How does that fit with the services we provide ?
The list is at : https://lists.mozilla.org/listinfo/dev-decentralization
I will wait a week or so to launch topics there, but if you are interested in this topic, if you want to lurk or to launch an idea - please join.
On my side, the first topic I will probably talk about in this ML is #1.
