It might be really interesting to look at Google's android apps and see what it would take to 'self host' those protocols.

I'm thinking things like: Modify android to look for say gmail.com at a different host (one you control) and pull email from your server that way. Similarly the push notifications, drive, contacts, etc.

Some services (maps) you probably don't want to mess with, but I suspect lots of people would value the ability to self host their data - but still make use of the rich Google apps.

This is of course very likely NOT on the right side of "correct". Google's apps are made to pair only with their services. The other alternative is to NOT use any Google apps and simply use ones that give similar functionality.

My main thought here is to better understand the APIs being used, and push to standardize them as "the way" to manage cloud interaction.

I figure it should be possible to patch / reverse engineer the auth. The bits are not encrypted on the android device so it can be done.

I've been working to bring server side JavaScript to IBM systems - specifically PowerPC. Nice to see the team his this milestone.
The IBM SDK for Node.js provides a stand-alone JavaScript runtime and server-side JavaScript solution for IBM platforms.

http://v8ppc.osuosl.org:8080 has 64 bit builds. The code doors support 64 bit.

I can't comment on IBM product plans but given that the technology exists it's just a matter of time.

Mongodb support is a different issue. I know it's being worked on, but don't know specific status.

No easy solution yet. Code is up on github but doesn't support that version of the chip yet.

This looks pretty awesome. I like how they plan to not only measure but teach too.
Voltset, the smartest and tiniest multimeter on Earth, plans to put a electrical knowledge to everyplace that needs it.

Been thinking about CyanogenMod and the recent SMS 'intercept' that allows all SMS apps to transparently use a secure layer https://plus.google.com/+CyanogenMod/posts/jnZSBV96wxU

What if someone was to introduce a way to filter/process all communication to Google? Example: contacts - do some local to your phone PGP encrypt/decrypt of contact info. Make sure it's formatted in a way that keeps Google contact info sane.

Result is Google servers never see the actual contact data, but all of your local apps work fine.

Something like: http://www.ciphercloud.com/gmail-encryption-ciphercloud.aspx
