      I have been thinking the same thing, and here is an
      application I am considering. We have a group of 48 teachers visiting
      this summer from Korea for a professional training program. In addition
      to having a wiki for the program, I thought it would be nice for the
      group to be represented on crowd status. They could visit through the
      wiki and see what the rest of their colleagues are up to during their
      stay in Missoula. I think a twitter insert in the sidebar wouldn't give
      the full scope of the groups investigations. They also may want to share
      a quick link or two that they come across in their methodology classes.
      I expect crowd status to broaden communication among the participants,
      highlight the options available to the group and also remain a resource
      for continuing collaboration after the end of the program. I would also
      like to draw previous programs into the crowd, so that teachers can be
      in touch with those that have come before and will come after.

      Hi everyone.

      I look at crowdstatus and find myself thinking isn't this just Twitter
      writ small? Maybe it's come to be because Twitter has been so
      successful and we all have too many people to follow so we feel the
      need to refine it back to just a few with a tool like crowdstatus?

      And I look at it and wonder what its use is? Yes, it looks good, and
      works well, bu how would you use it? Apart from being a mini-Twitter,
      what would you do with it? Anyone care to enlighten me? :)
