Cozy cloud looks pretty awesome!

Andrei Sambra ( who works on rww.io and data.fm ) was saying that he met up
with some of the cozy cloud developers and brain stormed how the best
features of these two projects could be combined.

If this could be achieved you would have a first class interface, together
with a really powerful standards compliant back end that offers 100% data

I think this may be the job of one full time developer and imho would be a
great match for freedombox.  (A similar argument applies to OwnCloud, but I
suspect that would be a harder integration)
