ownCloud: when the cloud is not someone else's computer!

Note: WE ARE MEETING AT CIVIC HALL!! We'll need names, and you will
need IDs. RSVP will open Tuesday Jan 26th, 2016, 4:30pm.

For many people cloud means storing data in an abstract place where it
is always available, and this is a wonderful feature.

However the privacy, security and availability risks are high, because
in the end you are just putting your data on someone else's computer.

ownCloud is an Open Source project that aims at bringing the cloud
back in your hands while maintaining the ubiquitous access features
that make the cloud paradigm desirable to so many users.

This talk will cover topic such as cloud service decentralization,
cloud federation and will cover ownCloud feature-set and roadmap.


Join us afterwards at The Storehouse Pub where we'll continue the
discussion over drinks and/or food. The Storehouse Pub is located at
69 W. 23rd Street.
