Spaces provides tools and services to support the small and informal collaborations that are commonplace in today's research community. After authenticating to Spaces, you can create new spaces for your projects and collaborations, and can invite others to join these. Spaces are private by default.
Each space provides well-known tools such as a web site, wiki, svn/git repository, discussion forum, etc., and we are planning to extend this to include others such as mailing lists, large file storage, Dropbox, a search engine, or virtual machines. Visit our Sandbox Space to have a look at an example -- but don't use it for anything important, you should create your own space for this.
You could create a space just for yourself to hold your research notes, or to back up your Mathematica notebooks in an svn repository. You could create a space when you are writing a paper with a collaborator, holding your latex files or discussion notes. A space does not use many resources, so don't feel bad if there are spaces that you don't use any more.
The content of a space is securely backed up. While not yet available, we will implement a facility to export a space in a standard way, so that you always have full access to all your content for any purpose.
