Come to think of it, if USENET software wasn't so cumbersome, I kind of 
wonder if today's "social network" would consist of home servers running 
NNTP - and I expect the traffic would be very symmetric. (For that 
matter, with a few tweaks, the USENET model would be great for 
"groupware" - anybody remember the Netscape communications server that 
added private newsgroups and authentication to the mix?)
