I first read about Avvenu on Russell Beattie’s blog a couple of months ago. In his blog entry, Russell looks at Orb, SoonR and Avvenu for remote-access services and ends up selecting Avvenu. Read his blog for more details on how he ends up picking Avvenu, which he describes as the easiest, simplest, yet most useful of all the services. Since I’ve had mixed results with a combination of remote-desktop, VNC, CVS and other solutions, I decided to give Avvenu a shot.
Avvenu is a free service that allows you to remotely access your home or office PC or as many computers as you wish from any other computer or mobile phone. In addition to getting to your machine(s), you can also easily share files and photos with other people. To enable sharing, you install the Avvenu client on your machine and it sits in the task-tray and manages connections for uploads or download. Access to your computer is protected by SSL and a username/password combination. You can also selectively share out one file or one folder or your whole computer to anyone. You control who gets access and for how long. Your guests see exactly what you have shared and nothing else. The people with whom you share don’t need the Avvenu client nor do they need to sign up for the Avvenu service – To view or download the file(s) you have authorized as shares for them, the person only clicks on the link sent by e-mail.
One of the nice features of Avvenu is the use of HTTPS as the transport protocol. This makes is easy to tunnel through routers, firewalls and internal NATing schemes. Here are some screenshots of Avvenu in action on my machine:
The screenshot above shows off the ‘homepage’ for my machine and displays all the drives that are available to me remotely, when I’m logged in as me.
This screenshot shows me a file I am about to download when I’ve drilled into my drive.
If you need to access your machine remotely, you cannot go wrong with Avvenue. I’ve been using it for the past 2 months now and I don’t what I would do without it at this point. Besides a few simple tests, I haven’t played with the mobile side of Avvenu but that’s another awesome feature set that opens up new avenues (pun intended ;)) for being productive remotely.

The Economist magazine has a story in their next issue entitled
Enthusiasm for Google drains away as doubts set in. The article talks about the recent fall in the Google stock price after Davos and there is nothing earth shattering in the article but I was taken aback by the market chart they included in the article as I hadn’t realized how steeply the Google stock had fallen. The one interesting point that that article raises is about we value these Internet companies – Traditional model of 20x earning for a bricks-n-mortar company doesn’t seem to work for technology companies and a debate on valuations is sorely needed before Bubble2.0 implodes.
Here’s a shot from Yahoo Finance comparing Google, Yahoo, Amazon against NASDAQ:
Guess Yahoo’s not having a great 2006 either.
