This is a pretty cool idea. I like the idea that we can creat blogs and stuff on here now. We'll see how well the features and stuff work, but should be good times... good times.
The Message Boards are cool, but eventually you get tired of having one conversation in a thread, get it resolved, only to have it brought up by another poster who wasn't paying much attention. Now I can just write a blog entry and refer people to that instead of covering the topic all over again. Beautiful!
