CouchDB’s web API and offline replication capabilities make it ideally
suited to power a sea-change in the relationships between users and
service providers. I’ll talk about the benefits and challenges of the
P2P web as well as give a brief overview of the technologies that make
CouchDB an “obvious” extension to the current architecture of the web.
