FlightFeather's goal is "social networking for everyone". This means that anyone should have a chance to run a popular social networking site on minimal hardware, and without wasting bandwidth. Whenever the system's state changes, it generates static HTML pages. Pure read operations (usually about 90% of the total) do not require the application to run at all. Since conserving computing resources translates directly into conservation of physical resources (e.g. electricity use of large server farms), such "green software" can also benefit the environment. FlightFeather is already a functional system, and runs the "bosstats.com" site.
Hep Message Server is software that transfers messages between different messaging systems. Eventually, it should transparently route messages between email, weblogs, and instant messaging. Currently Hep does one thing: fetches news feeds from Web sites and lets you view them in your email client.
