What is Blogfish?
==========

Blogfish is the memepool.

Blogfish is social networking meets evolutionary software meets
peer-to-pier networking. Blogfish is best eaten wrapped in newspaper,
with salt and vinegar. Blogfish is the fin end of the wedge.

More prosaically, blogfish is a Gnome panel applet, written in Python
using PyGTK and Gnome-python. It allows you to spread your blog URL,
website URL or random thoughts to other users. Good memes survive; bad
ones are voted down and go belly up.
