OK mastofrens, who's using scuttlebutt? I think it's really neat and will probably use it. I wish I had more nerdy friends to use it in person though.

@robjloranger this one?

Is there a way to explain it in simple terms? Some type of mesh network?

@mattbk yes that's the guy, check out the site there is a little video that explains it well. It's an append only log based social network. Users on the same physical network can gossip the logs of the users they have seen.
