Here’s a post from reader John Eckman where he discusses his journey researching and choosing a platform to host his Lifestream. It’s a good read where he provides information on several different options along with insightful details.
From the post:
For a while now I’ve been testing out a few lifestreaming platform options. My current shortlist includes four open source approaches / platforms and two hosted offerings.
I think ultimately I’ll want to keep an open source (LAMP) platform because I want to own the data in my lifestream, have backups of it, and be able to move it around as I please. This leaves me choosing between a platform linked to a blog (WordPress or MovableType) or a standalone one (Sweetcron, Storytlr or similar) that just powers the lifestream.
