I find Tim Berners-Lee's article about 'Socially Aware Cloud Storage' [1] a good introduction to the concepts.

I installed the webbox software a feew weeks ago on my desktop PC. I posted some issues I had during installation and how I resolved them [2].
That might save other people some time figuring out how to get things working ..

I didn't have time to play around with it yet, though.
