Excellent suggestion, thanks for bringing some order to this thread
Matthias. But kinda sad to see people reply to this with technology
evaluations - I mean, COME ON PEOPLE, the point here is to IGNORE
technology until we've figure out

 1. what problems we want to solve for the user

 2. the user experience

So, everyone, please refrain from even thinking about mentioning
specific projects like tracker, couchdb, zeitgeist, nepomuk, whatever
etc. in this thread. Thanks.

Suggest to do this in a new thread.
