Gwern on IRC mentioned that he had seen something about Tahoe and  
allmydata.com on a blog, but he couldn't remember which one.

"Tahoe is being discussed on blogs?" I wondered.  So I used google's  
"blog search" function and found a few hits:


Hm.  It's in Japanese, and it appears to have accumulated the most  
important getting-started docs: installing tahoe, starting it, and  
programming it through the wapi.  Otherwise there doesn't seem to be  
any comment added by the author.


This blog is about education and "e-portfolios".  I don't know what e- 
portfolios are.  One of the things that I love about capitalism and  
the modern world is that it is full of people actively and happily  
working on stuff that I've never heard of.

One of my goals for Tahoe is that the day will come when there are  
people actively and happily using Tahoe for things that I don't  
understand.  Actually, judging from this mailing list, this process  
has already begun.

Anyway, this blogger who is into e-portfolios wants a service where  
she can keep stuff and conveniently hyperlink to it.  She likes the  
way allmydata.com facilitates that.  Oh, and this was back in April,  
so hopefully if she tries the new allmydata.com 3.1 she'll like it  
even more.


This blogger likes the idea that he can subscribe to service from  
allmydata.com, but that he can know exactly how it works because the  
source code is open source.  He writes "source code as a form of open  
disclosure".  Good point.
