Web-based file hosting, synchronization, and collaborative editing services have made sharing files easier than ever. While these features aren't new, the web 2.0 cloud context they are being offered through has brought them to the reach of the average user with low barriers to use. These freemium services often come at a hidden price of control, privacy, and usually security. This presentation will give an overview of what ownCloud is, why one might use it, what technologies it employs, the services & features it offers, how to set it up, and discuss the use case the presenter has deployed.

Jesse Bufton is an independent web designer/developer and sometimes graphic designer. Jesse began his journey to *nix operating systems in 2000. In his most zen of moments, Jesse forages wild plants, hunts mushrooms, and ferments both food and beverage with friends--all accounted for on the blog Fermentemptations.com

Many will head to the Lucky Lab at 1945 NW Quimby St. after the meeting.
