Perkeep is super interesting. I have been looking at it as a media database (photos, movies and such, powerful tag-based search, all downloaded on demand), but some things regarding that really hurt:

- The data store messes with my files (yes, there's a FUSE mount, but eh, having to adopt a special data store always makes me feel weird since it usually comes with performance and compatiiblity implications, there are also many other block-chopping data stores, for example in IPFS).

- The last time I checked there was no way to delete something. This is okay for Tweets I guess, but if I commit a 3h video I later realize to just be too large or a photo I end up not really wanting around - well, oops.

I have huge respect for Brad Fitzpatrick in general, of course, and especially for creating this. Recent velocity has seemilgly been relatively low, however: https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=22161812
