Same here. I'm really excited about what these people (and others) are doing in this space, but the lack of an open source code and the service lock-in (mostly) are huge turn offs for me.

I've started building a prototype of this idea using PouchDB/CouchDB (data is stored locally in PouchDB, synced to your own CouchDB server or Cloudant). As with most of my side projects, it remains abandoned waiting for some love.

Where is your PouchDB/CouchDB prototype? Can I see it? I want take some ideas from it, perhaps fork it.
