, My dear friend,
I'm here (very disappointed) to help for this project to develop as much as possible, which should not be hard at all for coders/developers (especially if you're benefiting from it - academically)
I'm interested in this project because of many reasons, and one of them, the #1 FIRST on my list is OUR PRIVACY RIGHTS!
Right now, currently, we have a very strange phenomenon, that many people tend to use centralized Web Services to store all kinds of data and even ALL of their data, which may very well be a big danger, because after someone (a government, maybe?) will hack a way to the database of one user, it (he/she) will be able to get a "portrait" of the victim in an accuracy of 99.999...999%
We need projects of this kind, projects like Chipmark, SiteBar and some few others, but unfortunately, it is not enough (not many features)
Maybe, the real admins of this project are doing it deliberately, they maybe want to end this project forever, maybe they're acting in a very unorganized way, so it won't look like as if they didn't intend on finish this project.
Why? Bribe, and it could very well be!
See the "search engine" market, how many do we have? (less than 5 usable) Why? Corruption.
And how much privacy one can have? Almost NONE.
BTW: (search engines)

Using your own Data Management tools on your independent server is NOT in accord to big business companies.
Just as using Jabber to communicate with a Jabber-Client only to communicate with all other proprietary networks.
You may use Independent (not centralized & non-big business company) Jabber Server OR install your own server (which is less than ~20 MB upload a day, meaning that you just need a domain address and you're set) with Getaways to AIM, ICQ, MSN, Yahoo!, MySpace etc. to teach your server to communicate with other platforms.
And all you have is a anonymous Jabber account that is hard to track by big-government or by big-business

You may use your own server and hide yourself with Getaway that is installed in other server (e.g. http://jabme.de/
I've downloaded the Chipmark source code many times and I got many copies and I'm getting ready for the big (and deliberate) collapse of this service.
Have fun, until then Big Brother... Is Watching You!
