What would a “public notepad” do?

First question of the new year.

Yesterday I wrote about using Twitter as a “public notepad.”

Sure, the note-putting part of it was great. One item after another in rapid-fire, with the ability of people to add or comment. Most of it was pretty civil because.. Well I don’t know why.

But when it came time to gather it all up and present it as a matter of record, that was a lot of hard work, and the result wasn’t very satisfying.

So how would it work?
