Well, after a year of very hard work, we have finally entered a (limited, invitation-only) Beta for indi. What is indi? You can find out here: http://getindi.com. indi is our answer to folks who believe that you need to put all your stuff on their servers to gain anytime-anywhere access to it.
Technically indi combines a lot of the work I have done in Ruby such as FreeBASE (plug-in framework for the FreeRIDE IDE), Jabber4r and Alph (Ruby to Flash bridge) with the work I have been doing in Flash/ActionScript...specifically the ActionStep port of the OpenStep/Cocoa App Kit to Flash. This combination creates a cross-platform execution environment with Ruby as the data manager, and Flash for the UI.
indi runs on OS X and Windows right now, and as soon as Flash 8 is supported on Linux it will run there as well. indi is more like a platform than an application, and its going to allow us to give some really cool capabilities to our users and deliver on a vision we have of digital independence (reverse the two and you get in..di - indi).
Anyway, we have a busy schedule ahead to release our next Beta in about 4 weeks at O'Reilly's Emerging Technology Conference.
