Thanks for delving into the differences and citing examples. I think there is a world where diaries and the mgoboard can coexist peacefully. It's just a matter of getting everyone to agree on their uses (and actually use them). Brian is giving his readers(/followers/lovers?) a place to communicate and share ideas. I think he was looking for a way to cut through the crap and pull out related & useful information to also include in his posts. Thanks Brian. Thanks Ninja. Thanks Barwis.
Now who wants to talk McGuffie?
