One problem with the growing list of different means of discussing REBOL is that communication starts to get fragmented. Spam sucks, but I don't think email's dead yet. Who can afford to turn their email off and tell those in their address list to use software X, Y, or Z instead? (No matter how much they'd like to;)

I'd recommend as quite good for blogging. (It has a GNU license - see ) Can be used to create private sections, communities and has RSS support. There's also quite a few third-party front-ends to it, (as apposed to its browser front-end), though none written in REBOL yet.

I'd call that useful, but not an alternative to a blog. -- Carl Read
