So.. you interested in starting the two of us?
The only problem on doing this on a larger scale or even trying to promot
it, is that people may tend to be concerned about giving someone access to
their machine. It is a valid concern too..
I recall there was a project that would allow distributed backups and all
data would be encrypted. I think the developer got a proof of concept
done, but don't know if he ever got it to a working stage. Don't recall
the name of the system unfortunately.
