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  panel applet for your Gnome desktop.
It allows you to spread your blog, website URL or random thoughts
in the form of small, internet-enabled, RSS-parsing sea creatures. Good memes
survive; bad ones are voted down and go belly up.
