Well, Pierce and I just finished this new blog/message-board software we call GAB (for "Great! Another Blog!") so we've both started our own boards to take the bits out for a shakedown cruise. The bits will undoubtedly change over time, but we're pretty impressed with the simplicity we've achieved so far.
For now, we've got the software configured to only allow us to add messages (blog entries) but at least one more use is in the wings, and hopefully that will allow anybody access.
Could be fun.
