SocialPlex and ThreadSpinner

I've had the domain for some time and hadn't done anything with it, so I've set up a forum there. Please feel free to stop by and chat if you want to. This space is for all my "internet friends" who want a neutral space to hang out and discuss stuff.

Pursuant to the problems I've had for a while with my writing on others' blogs being lost to me (yes, cut and paste is too hard) I am working on a web application that will sort of combine forums and blogs. I'm currently calling it "ThreadSpinner". While I don't want to get into too much detail, the idea is to create a community oriented site that allows people to easily converse and, simultaneously, "spin off" their conversations into original writing. I will be writing it in Ruby on Rails, and if anybody's interested in collaborating I'm setting up a Subversion repository.
