Heres a blog system that takes advantage of the most plentiful comodity on the internet at the moment… Gmail.

The software is called Galliana and it uses Gmail messages as entries and the replies to those messages as comments.

When you “Star” a message in gmail it publishes it to your Galliana Blog.

The latest release of Galliana is V 0.3

Galliana v0.3 Features

* Uses GMail messages as “entries” (the message star is the publish status)
* Replies to conversations are the “entry comments”
* Uses libgmailer (gmail-lite project) to connect to GMail
* Support jpeg/png attachments
* Support comments from the web
* Is free software 😉 (GPL)
