dotuseful is going on the web!

We are developing a rich web application platform which will be a base for smart and flexible web solutions like online communities. Planned set of features is rich and includes web CMS, messaging, forums, polls, wikis and everything a dynamic website needs. We use JSF with custom presentation layer which will use plain HTML templates.

As always, underlying design should be brilliant.
