Mind's Eye Re: conversion to blog?

The software used by Naked Capitalism allow for people to be taken on and off moderation. Is it free?

Thanks Molly.  I'm not sure on the private nature.  Usenet has lost a lot of connectivity - I think I actually feel more on our old groupiness than privacy.

and I like Naked Capitalism's policies.  Usable content!

Well, a group blog effort would make this experience more dimensional.  We could post videos and pictures, comment on each other's posts as conversations, and build the widgets together like the book shelves.  I haven't seen it done but like it in concept.  I don't know how it would keep the conversation private, if that is what you are going for.  I for one am willing to try.

There are various places one can set up a website blog now without expert skills.  Google seems to be leaving this format behind and I haven't really recovered from the new group format.  I wonder if people would have a quick look at Naked Capitalism (not what I have in mind on content) as an example we might consider.  Basically, it's just a few links, cute piccies, book plugs and the odd article (good one today from Lambert Strether on modern monetary theory) as some cross-posted stuff.  We could migrate to somewhere like WIX and do something like this on our interests.  We could keep a 'group' ethos.  We might update once a week rather than daily.  We'd need a wider set of mods.  Anyone else interested?
