Haha, nice—I love it when we dig out these threads from so long ago!
So the open source personal cloud is bubbling up the priority list. There are lots of pieces, so we’re taking it in steps. We’re working now on a command line tool to simplify some of the debugging steps users have to perform to get their Cores connected.
After that there are some firmware changes we have to make to simplify the process of pointing your Core somewhere other than the Spark Cloud. These changes will be a little hard to manage from a backwards compatibility angle, but we’ve sketched out a solution internally.
In any case, it’s not available yet, but it’s important, and we’re working on it.
Keep your eye on the Spark blog for new feature announcements at the end of every two-week sprint.
