Just a heads-up,

Open source.  P2P, fully decentralized.   Encrypted.  

Sound familiar?

I was reading about Jeremie Miller (creator of Jabber/XMPP)'s Locker Project and the Telehash protocol.

Lockers provide a personally-owned data repository that allow individuals to bypass some of these difficulties, and to authorize and authenticate applications on top of this rich data. Lockers also enable connections with non-traditional data types, such as browser history, email records, utility records, etc (at an individual's discretion), enabling very rare insight into a person's data profile.

By using a rich system of connectors and collections, lockers make it possible to access and aggregate personal data, even when no traditional web API exists for the source. Interactions between lockers, applications, data and services are encrypted and secured via a highly secure protocol and system of authorization.






The very first thing I thought of when reading this was if it was suitable as a Bitocin lightweight client, operating similar to how Webcoin works against a BitcoinJS server, I envision a Locker using a connector hitting a peer running a bitcoinjs equivalent.  [Update, but wasn't the first to consider this.]

At a minimum, these apps accessing lockers will have billing needs, so even if storing wallet data in a locker is not an appropriate use, there might be other areas where bitcoin would tie into this this project.
