i read the paper and it looks like an interesting concept to me:
- RDF triplestore as storage
- WebID and WebACL for authentication and authorization
- peer-to-peer communication between webboxen

the triplestore likes "big" machines [1], so it's hard to say how well 
it fits with the fbx hardware without giving it a spin [2].
