At the first meeting, a few weeks ago, there was a student who asked if there was something he can download that runs the gadget themselves, without google's servers. I told him that the engine is google's and you cannot use it yourself.
Well, I was wrong :)
Apparantly Google made it open source some time ago. It's called Shindig. You can look for it.
I think this student is not in our workshop anymore, at least i didn't recognize that he is. If anyone remember who he was (he was sitting on the right (from the lecturer's view) front side, and was asking many (smart) questions), then please let him know.
I don't think Shindig will be useful for any of you for this workshop's project, but it's good to know it exists.
