Podling is a simple decentralized discussion platform we built for ourselves and have been using internally at SitePoint, Flippa and 99designs for a few months now… We think of it as 'social glue for teams' and we're ready to open up to see what you think.
The thing that I love the most about Podling is that it allows you to do away with those huge group emails.
The idea is you can quickly and easily set up small “throw-away” discussion groups (called pods) and each pod is private to the people you invite to it.
We use it to organise social events, manage projects, share things of interest, discuss dev & marketing ideas etc
One of the key things that makes Podling great is that it doesn't need to be centrally controlled by your sysadmin. Each member can control the pods that they start, and start or leave pods at any time.
We also created an iOS app which you can download from the App store on iTunes which is handy if you’re involved in multiple pods.
You can get started at http://podling.com
We’d love to hear your thoughts via the “Podling Feedback” pod which you will automatically get access to when you join.
