Of course, I do not know what the main ideas behind the "web browser  
history store" idea are,
but at least from my (quite distant) point of view, I want to  
carefully comment on this one:

Isn't this an - in some sense - artifical project? Wouldn't it be  
several orders
of magnitude more natural to implement an email archive first?

At least for me, losing my browser's history is less dramatic than  
losing all my mails.
(Think of all the attachments!)

Perhaps I'm wrong, but I think e-mail, instant messenger communication  
logs, sms, ...
are more valuable than anyone's browser history.

It might also be an interesting thing to get people moving their mails  
out from gmail (etc.)
to Tahoe mail archives!

Well, I hope noone got me wrong with this comment ;-)
It's just my feeling about this topic...

Cheers,
Malte
