I've gone back and forth with Eric Evenchik and he's working on it in his spare time. The SW is the challenge there too.

Here's a really good Kickstarter project using the CC3000 ... I'm a backer now...and planning to become an earlier adopter to get the Core in June.

I really like the price and form-factor of the CC3000 WiFi module   http://www.ti.com/product/cc3000

and I REALLY link the concept of SimpleLink for a headless embedded device  http://www.ti.com/ww/en/simplelink/

From what I can tell, there is no Arduino support for the module and from what I read, the module supports DHCP, DNS, TCP/IP and UDP but not much else (ie no HTTP) - for sure less than the current Ardunio WiFi shield (that works great but it too expensive for my needs and does not have the SimpleLink capability) ...

So my question is - does anyone have an idea how hard it would be to hook up the module to an Uno (SPI interface is pretty straightforward) and to get a library in place to support the module to the point that we could hook up to cosm.com (formerly pachube.com aka patch bay).

Thoughts, comments? 

Cheers David

PS: BTW I'd be willing to build the shield and provide it to the community to do the API work
