Funny you should mention that.  NNTP is, to my mind, the world's 
greatest messaging protocol.  Back in the day, Netscape built a 
"collaboration server" that added access controls and some management 
functions to an NNTP server - it was an incredibly powerful tool.

In some sense, the model sitting in the back of my mind, is:
- NNTP (with encryption and crypto-based access controls)
- easier management of (private) group creation
- messages containing HTML & JavaScript that can do some embedded 
threading (think about sending a Wiki page, the initial page shows up as 
a news message, edits are automatically applied rather than showing up 
as separate messages)

Yes... saw that a while back - does look really interesting.


In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice.
In practice, there is.   .... Yogi Berra
