Folks, this is why it matters and someone should snap up the entire codebase and app (in source of course) for HomeDaemon-MCP and put it on the market.
Yes, I know, I can. I have the capital to roll it out. I have good personal reasons to not want to though, especially given where I live now and what I think is going to happen to the political environment there. Further, any business that deals in any sort of physical product (even coffee mugs) is ridiculously burdened in Florida. I knew this when I moved to the State and never intended to start another business that might sell same in the future. Anyway, that's the short side of the story and there is of course more, but for this coming year it is what it is.
On to the reasons: You now are seeing the media pick up on the business model question -- and especially recommend eschewing cloud anything. And not just any media -- the GRAY LADY herself. You want to know why you should do it now? Because opportunity is best when its hot, and it's hot right now.

They call the new technique screwdriving which seems entirely appropriate... but added massively to the coffee explosion out my nose. Now I need a new keyboard, which is somewhat of a bummer but definitely worth it.
Look to the right and email me folks -- because I've decided that I just don't want to do it here in Florida, and I'm unsettled on where I'd rather live (in no small part due to the political shifts around the nation) the opportunity is now to buy this out at a quite-polite price all things considered.
