There are several cases where off the top of my head I wish there where ways to do computation on my own data sitting in blockstack in the background and not consume everything on the client side.
This could realistically be done by having some type of server tied to gaia that, runs trusted verified scripts, and giving it access to decrypt and manipulate application specific data. Something to compliment gaia. Maybe giving users a ui to manage background process on their data, and controlling what tasks has access to what data. Maybe making these scripts opensource would be a requirement.
Is there anything like this currently that anyone is working on? Or is this something as a community we are trying to avoid.
