Leeho L said something interesting. People have been having discussions with other people very successfully for millenia. So how do we avoid having the computer organize the data like a tree? How about letting people organize the data by letting people create flat sub-discussions, which are also regular discussions. There would be two types I can think of - pure subject oriented discussions and invited participant discussions. Both would leave a link in the original discussion. Everyone would be invited to comment in the subject oriented discussions, but only invited participants would be able to comment in the other. Everyone could read both. This method would naturally segment discussions, allowing natural side conversations to be side conversations without cluttering the original discussion. This also operates more like a party, where people wander off in groups. Yours, Tom
