Client-Side Storage in Web 2.0 Applications

This looks to be a fantastic breakthrough. I think Brian A. will get a kick out of the storage system he describes... it sounds awfully familiar. ;-)

I'm proud to announce the immediate availability of dojo.storage and a new web-based editor named Moxie.

Imagine if web applications could store megabytes of data on the client-side, in the browser, both persistently and securely. No server needed.

I'm going to have to implement this for Conversant. Soon.

(Thanks for the link, Daniel.)

I looked at this and I think I understand. Sorta. How about posting a simple use case to demonstrate how this might be used in Conversant?

One example: every 30 seconds, we save a copy of whatever message you're working on (creating or editing) to a "drafts" folder. With local storage, you could have an unlimited number of messages in draft form, of any size. Hopefully, we could even figure out how to include enclosures.

You'd have access to the drafts for a given site whenever you're at that site. (So, on truerwords.net you'd be able to pick from a list of incomplete messages that you've started here, but on voicesofunreason.com, terryfrazier.com and brian.carnell.com you would have completely different lists.

Did that make sense? It's just one example, there are probably others.

Yes, yes it does. And I like it. The inability to edit posts when I'm not connected is pet peeve of mine, and has led to countless hours spent fiddling with offline blog editors. Having local storage of drafts would be a very cool thing. No doubt there are several other interesting uses for this.
