Bottom up programming

We have been working on some interesting things here at Xobni.  We have said from the beginning that there is a lot of useful data locked in our inboxes.  However the actual amount of data in kilobytes makes working with the data difficult.  Much of the past six months was spent interfacing to mail clients, collecting data, creating methods for accessing data, iterating through thousands of messages quickly, and presenting the data in a rich format.  We are now at the fun part.  We get to build on top of our new foundation.

Within an afternoon we can leverage our data collection to expose email data in a useful manner.  The past month has been spent doing just that.  We aren’t quite ready to talk about the full product pipeline, but you’ll be the first to know as a reader of our blog.

We would like to let everyone know about our newly created open source contribution page www.xobni.com/opensource.php.  We’ve posted our first two contributions: .NET 2.0 framework installer for NSIS and a fix for a serious bug in Mono.  We count on the open source community for a lot of help and it feels good to return the favor.
