I'm hoping to get CouchDB (http://guide.couchdb.org/
) running on the Raspberry Pi (if it's not already included as part of Ubuntu) so I can use it as an efficient "Couch appliance". Perhaps pair it with a small USB-powered HDD like http://eshop.macsales.com/item.....U35100GB8/
so I can experiment with using it as an HTTP-only file and data server for my photo library (https://github.com/natevw/ShutterStem
It's the low power waste I'm most interested in, as I'd also love to host my own always-on "personal cloud" from home with the ability to do geo/sensor collection (https://github.com/natevw/LocLog
) experiments while I'm out and about.
