When Shell integrated Recall with its Open Spirit infrastructure, the natural course of action was to get Baker Atlas to write an OpenSpirit server for Recall. An Open Spirit development kit was duly acquired, but despite Recall’s developers’ best efforts, they found it too complicated keeping up with Open Spirit’s technology. In the end, Baker supplied Open Spirit with a copy of its own dev kit—so Recall’s Open Spirit server is also a Recall client application! A variant on the ‘your place or mine’ conundrum perhaps?
