Today I had an interesting lunch with Wuala founder Dominik Grolimund talking about their promising online hard-disk software. Only 2 months at ‘invited alpha status’ this p2p software already has several thousand registered users - also because it’s available for Windows, Mac and even Linux. Dominik explained that particularly the Linux user community is very interesting for him since these are the lead users who heavily test the system, report bugs and provide other helpful feedback - something we found in our current case study on Nokia Internet Tablets as well. And the Wuala team even wants to follow Nokia’s steps and ‘open source’ some of its own code next year - so welcome at OpenExpo 2008 in Bern ;) And BTW, Wuala is hiring particularly open source hackers. So if you’ve time grab the chance and participate in something radically innovative!
