Three collaborative spaces I know well enough to recommend, written up in response to a friend’s search. Collective Agency Open floorplan collectivist space, with lots of community facilities including a full kitchen and side rooms with whiteboards and phones. Some have reported eerie quiet in the main area during the day weirds them out but you should try it and see for yourself. They host an all-day open house once monthly.
I moved my Documents folder into camli (on my home ARM server) and have been accessing it via FUSE for 10 days or so. Overall, the FUSE filesystem has been unstable. 1. FUSE exits occasionally without explaination This is probably an easy fix, I haven’t looked at the code yet. 2. writes block until everything has been uploaded successfully This is painful over slow links.

Background Last Friday Don Park pointed me at the project, which started as a Google 20% project and has since been open sourced (when?). There’s a lot to like about Camli for content producers concerned that about the erosion of control over their digital legacy due to “leaking” of their various creative works into content stores controlled by third social providers, ad networks, and spying agencies. Social network TOS typically grant the network provider with various rights over your content, while ad networks and spying agencies never asked your permission in the first place.
