I have been programming and working with computers for over 35 years and what has turned out to be the biggest problem for me is finding the information I am looking for.  In the past 20 years I have owned dozens of computers and made a couple of thousand tarballs and hundreds of backup CD-R and DVD-Rs.  Trying to find a particular spreadsheet, e-mail or photo is practically impossible.

So what I hope to accomplish with Objectify is:

  1. All of your data (documents, photos, music, videos, e-mail, etc.) is all stored it one place, so you always know exactly where it is.
  2. Data is organized so that you can easily find anything.
  3. Data can be accessed from any of your devices, at any time.
  4. It is secure so that if your laptop, external USB drive, memory stick, etc. is lost or stolen your data cannot be accessed.
  5. Non-private data can be shared with everyone.  A good example would be the CD database with the track listings, but more information on everything.

Details (job description, contact ...):

I am trying to design the next generation of my project and instead of using random IDs for public objects, I am thinking of using the upper nibble of the ID to identify the object's domain.

Some of the things I have thought of (Note: this system changes the first item (computer related from 0 to 1 for some reason, so it looks like I have two ones instead):

  1. - computer system related

1 - universe - like time, physics, etc.
2 - earth - continents, countries, cities, streets, etc.
3 - people
4 - organizations
5 - language - characters, words, etc.
6 - documents
7 - photos and video
8 - music
F - private data

I have debated whether to write a RFC for this instead?  Any comments not related to my sanity are welcome :)
