  • Own Mailbox

    This seems like a very nice little project. Curious to learn how they build it and the exact specs of hardware used. And more importantly… will it blend? More here at the own-mailbox website #diy #foundprivacy #quote #security #software

  • The Pleasure of Do-It-Yourself Slow Computing | The New Republic

    This blogpost sums up big chunks of the reasons why I set up as a blog in the first place. Now my calendars, contacts, and backup files all sync with a free-and-open program called ownCloud, which McClelland maintains on the May First servers.
