Comment Re:Do you want all your info on the web? (Score 1) 82

I can understand why you might be afraid of laying out some personal info on an external server, but unless you're the sysadmin of your Intranet, how can you make sure that that sysadmin isn't reading your mail or personal files? IMHO, any web based application is as secure (if there is encryption of course) as an Intranet. And I'm sure that a mailman somewhere opens mail before delivering it... We live in a strange world, don't forget that :)

So forget about the security part, don't you think that such kind of app isn't what the Internet should be about? Accessing any info anywhere in the world? (and soon, from any device?) You might argue that with handheld devices, it is more and more easy to avoid those kind of apps. And I could agree with that. But can you easily share that information with someone else? I don't think so.

PS: I am one of the developer of OpenDesk.com, so one might think that my opinion is affected by that. I don't think we are trying to force people to use our apps, some people will have a use for it, some don't.
