this is a fascinating idea. maybe we could look at some examples from the
weblog community as was mentioned, e.g, weblogs.com and their list of
recently updated blogs and their free hosting of blogs, the
trackback/backlinking feature of movabletype (
http://movabletype.org/trackback/ ), metafilter and slashdot, weblog search
engines and indices

how about this: a central site that links to the zope site universe, has an
integrated xml-based listing of all recent zope content that is out there
(weblog-ish look, or like the xml news feed thing in radio userland), the
ability to set up your zope space/weblog/etc (like zope.org/Members but with
more access to neat zope stuff) and some integration with google...

if "core" zope stuff were to be separated from the community, then would it
make sense to integrate the core stuff with zope.com?
