comment on spaces

Gary, has commented on the upcoming release of spaces. Interestingly, he rented the room I lived in when I just got to Dublin more than a year ago. It's a small world!

back to writing

Plan B is back after a mini-hiatus of about a week. Hopefully now working on spaces and the Thesis won't interfere again... it's always a question of adapting to how the change of work-requirements on one daily task affects the others, and sorting it out. Problem is, it takes a while...

remote access on local apps

While working on a spaces feature (spaces web access, which allows you to access your data/application remotely through a web browser) I have been thinking about how our understanding of what an "application" is has been shifting. These days, many people regularly use applications that are distributed web services in nature (even though it might not be obvious to the non-technical users) like Radio or MovableType.

However, many of these applications are still depending on a server somewhere. What kinds of things will be possible when we open the same doors (e.g., XML-RPC interfaces) on all local applications, even, eventually, the OS (I'm not holding my breath for that one, though)? Assuming proper security (ie., authentication + encryption) something like the publish/subscribe Internet would be just the beginning.
