Dandelife: blogging about the past?

Dandelife describes itself as a "social biography network." Very interesting concept. The idea of "blogging" your stories of the past, your memories, strikes me as potentially very fruitful. I'm interested in seeing how they work the publishing angle. People who want to do this seriously will want their content to be very portable. I also see the potential for extensive educational uses (think of it as an easy entree into oral history-like applications for students and their families).

Sponit: basically one-off blog entries.

Panraven (just got a beta invite): sophisticated multimedia storytelling; format mimics a printed book with multiple pages per story and flexible text and image layouts.

Then there's always the "datablogging" site Reger.com, which I've been curious about for some time. Free Image Hosting at www.ImageShack.us
