I like the idea. We've been doing so for Marconi here[0] but I agree
that a more common place makes sense.

The thing I like about thoughtstreams is that members can have their
own stream and publish updates whenever they've something to say.
They'll all end up in the combined stream, which also has an RSS feed
that can be consumed.

Anyway, I'm pretty sure this is also possible with other tools.
