The demise of megaupload.

no comment

Back at oggcamp, I gave a brief presentation about what I saw as the dangers of storing content with cloud providers.  My arguments were based on the fact that your provider may go put of business, putting your content at risk.

And now we have the Megaupload case. If you used cyberlocker services such as Megaupload, how safe should you be feeling right now?

The absolutely safest way to host your content somewhere that you control right? I would suggest that if you wanted to be more sure of safely storing your content somewhere, that you consider the possibility if storing it in more than one place. What I would like to investigate is some publishing mechanism that automatically pushes updates to sites.

Imagine you have written a cool book – you host your content in launchpad and an ubuntu package is built whenever you update. But perhaps you also want to make if available on an ftp site. What if launchpad could push your content to an ftp address once complete? I plan to investigate this possibility.

 

When Launchpad successfully builds a binary deb file is created.  What I want to do is to write something that will allow the server to pull a specific file from a DEB file.

 

I have a PPA which I have used to store the content of the Linux Reality podcast – you can find it here.

 

So – let’s take episode 100 as an example:

You can find the Deb file here.

 

What I am working on is a plugin which allows the user to add a link to a page or post like so :

[debsplorer https://launchpad.net/~computa-mike/+archive/lrtest/+files/linuxreality100_0.1-1_all.deb /usr/share/file.ogg]
