Project Voldemort
Voldemort is a distributed key-value storage system...It is used at LinkedIn for certain high-scalability storage problems where simple functional partitioning is not sufficient. It is still a new system which has rough edges, bad error messages, and probably plenty of uncaught bugs. Let us know if you find one of these, so we can fix it. (Apache 2.0 license)

january 2009 by kkennedy · Franklin Street Statement on Freedom and Network Services
The Franklin Street Statement takes on new relevance with the shuttering of I Want Sandy: 'The current generation of network services or Software as a Service can provide advantages over traditional, locally installed software in ease of deployment, collaboration, and data aggregation. Many users have begun to rely on such services in preference to software provisioned by themselves or their organizations. This move toward centralization has powerful effects on software freedom and user autonomy.'

The Virtual Company Project
The net has enabled the creation of markets (eBay) and altruistic community production (wikipedia). But it hasn't yet made it easy for a group of individuals, located around the globe, to create a persistent legal entity that has the ability to own property, open a bank account and enter into contracts with third parties. State limited liability company acts can be modestly amended to provide the flexibility necessary for transient online groups to enjoy limited liability, group-based decision-making and, collectively, legal personhood.
