Subject Re: Joint - private sharing with CouchDB
Date Mon, 24 Sep 2012 16:12:16 GMT

multiplying on the other side of things -
instead of a service/host-app managing many users, each user-app is
managing many (similar) services/hosts.

hmmm very close to what i have been thinking, for
quite some time now but on a different projection..
