The LiveWall Project
The purpose of LiveWall is to create a live mini-blogging platform for the rapid sharing of links and other forms of Web 2.0 media. Each Message posted on a LiveWall will be able to have comments from users through embedded Twitter and OpenID (and potentially other) logins.
The name LiveWall comes from the UNIX command Wall which broadcasts a message to all users. In keeping with the idea of the Wall command no Message or comment posted on a LiveWall will be longer than 20 lines. Messages can be manually posted by a user or be automatically added by synchronising with Twitter and other micro-blogging platforms. A LiveWall can also have an RSS feed of Messages.
To keep things simple there will be no such thing as friends or followers all LiveWalls will be public. However, all comments will be able to be moderated and vetted before publishing. Only the LiveWall owner will be able to post a Message to his or her LiveWall. All LiveWalls will be self hosted stand alone installations; there is no centralised LiveWall hosting service – although someone could set one up. All content posted to a LiveWall would be the intellectual property of the LiveWall user.
Currently the project is in the planning stages. There is no release of stable (or even working source code). A simple prototype is currently being developed.
You can get the latest updates to the source code of the project using Git through: git://livewall.git.sourceforge.net/gitroot/livewall/livewall
