I'm bored. I have nothing to do and I have no interesting problem to solve. I don't want to go to the office because it's a weekend.
I think I'll just make a weird filesystem for Unix/Linux or something... I dunno... Hmmm...
I think I'll just write a filesystem in PHP because it's weird and I foresee weird commercial applications for it. A filesystem on HTTP would be weird and cool. Imagine, we can use Web services from various websites and mount them on our system. We can directly access RSS feeds, browse Flickr pics, or even use a database as our storage back-end.
I'll just use GPLv2 instead of BSD (my preferred license) because I'm not making any money out of this.
