What is SparkleShare?
SparkleShare is the result of Project SparklePony. At the Usability Hackfest this year in London, a couple of us OSS designers came to the conclusion that we don’t have a proper collaboration tool. We have been using Dropbox for this for a while. Dropbox has a great user experience, but it has downsides as well: you can’t host your own server; it’s not open source and has some freaky things in its license agreement.
