Austin based personal cloud discussion, collaboration and implementation group. This group is dedicated to envisioning, supporting and creating personal clouds that allow individuals (as well as others) to control, interface and integrate both their data and programs in a way that directly benefits them, In this context - Dropbox, Evernote or many other applications which support individuals - but do not allow individuals to control data, programs, interfaces, APIs - are not personal clouds. Personal clouds may require a personally controlled cloud OS - much like the personal computer allowed individuals to control computing following the mainframe era, Realistically we need an architecture that allows each of us to control multiple programmable persistent computational objects that exist in a securable globally unique identity space. None of this implies technology that we don't already have - but to bring it about may require system architectures and organization models that are different than our current norms. For material on Personal Clouds, see; http://personal-clouds.org/wiki/Main_Page http://upon2020.com/public/presentations/pc...

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
