ownCloud 5 released: a vision realized, a vision expanded

Today we are deciding how the world will look like in the future. We, the IT community, set the course of the train that is called “open society” now and we can decide into which station the train will roll into in 5-10 years. Is it the one where all the people still control their own data and information and can decide who has access to the personal files, photos, contacts, location data, chat messages and other personal information or will we live in a future where all the personal data of all the people in the world are stored on the servers of just a few big organizations and commercial interests, terms of services and secret services decide who has access to the digital life of everybody?

Owncloud

I just discovered OwnCloud and ThinkUp. They both look like neat solutions to many problems I had. Going to tinker around with them and will let you know what I think of them sooner or later

Owncloud – use it to create your own cloud to backup files, sync a calender or create your own shortlinks for using them in twitter status.net instead of bit.ly.

ThinkUp – Analyze your twitter, faceboogle status, updates, new friends and loads of other statistics from your own server.
