What is Blogfish?
---------------------
Blogfish is the memepool.

Blogfish is social networking meets evolutionary software meets
peer-to-pier networking. Blogfish is best eaten wrapped in newspaper,
with salt and vinegar. Blogfish is the fin end of the wedge.

More prosaically, blogfish is a panel applet for your Gnome desktop.
It allows you to spread your blog URL, website URL or random thoughts
in the form of small internet-enabled sea creatures. Good memes
survive; bad ones are voted down and go belly up.

Simple peer
---------------
If you want to run a blogfish peer but without Gnome GUI dependencies
- e.g. to run on a server - try downloading "branch-simple-peer" from
CVS, like so:

cvs -d:pserver:anonymous@cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/blogfish login

cvs -z3 -d:pserver:anonymous@cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/blogfish co
-r branch-simple-peer blogfish

Just because he's dead is no reason to lay off work.
