"PhotoMesa is a zoomable image browser. It allows the user to view multiple directories of images in a zoomable environment, and uses a set of simple navigation mechanisms to move through the space of images. It also supports grouping of images by metadata available from the file system." - aus dem HCIL, natuerlich moechte man fast sagen ;) [via blendo]

" is a collaborative event calendar, where anyone can add the music/sports/arts/film/drama events they're going to, find out who's going to the same events, and browse the event listings of other people with similar tastes."

i like the idea behind, but this is exactly the kind of software, that i do not want to use via centralized hosting. open-source the software behind and let hundreds or thousands upcoming communities grow. i'd really like to host such a thing and use it with a controlled group of friends. maybe someone should clone the software while it's fresh :)

"A fundamental tenet of distributed systems is they must be crafted with the reality that changes occur on the network. [..] Project Rio offers an initial response to these realities by providing a dynamic adaptive network architecture built using Jini technology mechanisms. Intrinsic to this architecture are a set of dynamic capabilities and reliance on Policy-based and Quality of Service mechanisms that extend capabilities currently found in distributed systems."

"It's all so predictable. There you are at a dinner party, sipping a second martini, when the conversation turns, inevitably, to distributed programming. What to do?" :)

"Managing a large software project is a challenge. Code is constantly being changed: bugs surface and are fixed, branches are created and merged — it's no small task to keep things coherent. [..] There's no silver bullet for this problem. However, one practice that may help keep things under control is continuous integration."

In response to your paragraph you might want to look into one of these:,

They don't satisfy all requirements you have but it seems to be a start. But there are many more opportunities if someone is building such a system which are very cool but very work intensive too. :-)
