FWIW, I started brainstorming on my own over here:

Some of these might be more feasible or desirable than others:

  * OpenVPN <http://openvpn.net/>
      o Secure connections to the FreedomBox and other home servers from
        out and about
      o Secure connections from out and about through FreedomBox
  * Tor <https://www.torproject.org/>
      o For network traffic privacy
  * Firefox Sync
      o Private Firefox sync server
  * Blobastorus <https://github.com/lloyd/blobastorus>
      o Self-hosted micro-storage for open web apps
  * TeleHash <http://www.telehash.org/>
      o Distributed hash table
  * ZNC <http://en.znc.in/wiki/ZNC>
      o IRC proxy, allows SSL in and out
      o Maybe needs to be accompanied with an IRC server?
  * Jekyll <https://github.com/mojombo/jekyll>
      o Blogging tool that produces static files
      o Other tools?
          + NanoBlogger <http://nanoblogger.sourceforge.net/>
          + Bloxsom <http://www.blosxom.com/>
          + PyBloxsom
          + Movable Type <http://www.movabletype.org/>
  * Pagekite <https://pagekite.net/>
      o For local hosting of an origin server for web content
  * Dumpcarton <https://github.com/lmorchard/dumpcarton>
      o One-way directory publishing to static Amazon S3 hosting
  * Private Dropbox clone
      o Multi-way sync between devices
  * XMPP server of some sort?
      o Or, is this better left to more "permanent" servers?
  * OPML Editor <http://editor.opml.org/> and other Dave Winer software:
      o Difficult, since it has an integrated GUI that can't easily be
        run headless.
      o Radio2
      o River2 <http://newsriver.org/river2.html>
  * Microblogging server
      o Embrace / extend
          + Act as client for Twitter, Facebook, etc
      o Publishing
          + Build static HTML and feeds
          + Auto-sync to Amazon S3, FTP, rsync, etc
          + Ping PubSubHubBub / rssCloud servers
      o Aggregation
          + TweetDeck replacement UI
      o Discovery
          + Syndicate follower / followed lists?
          + Gossip-style OpenSearch?
  * OpenID provider?
      o By way of Pagekite or the like?
  * Salmon client for commenting on sites?
  * NAS features?
      o Cross-site backups
          + Friends and family trading off-site backups
      o Streaming media access
