(replying to bertagaz here)
I may be a bit odd, but the only definition of "the cloud" that makes sense
to me, is "the machines that are always on and have fixed, route-able IP
addresses". Machines may be virtual or not, but those are the properties
that put them "in the cloud" as opposed to someone's living room, a
company's internal network, or a wifi-enabled coffee shop.
We will want to use "the cloud" for all sorts of things. We just want to do
it on our own terms. :-)
If you only meant that you don't want the FreedomBox to be a Facebook and
Flickr client.. then I might be tempted to agree. On the other hand, that is
exactly what the Diaspora guys are doing, to make sure people actually want
to use their stuff. It's a good strategy.
