Shoutbox: Comments meet Sign-In Book meets Chat

One feature I've noticed is often on sites that cater to younger audiences is the ever present Shoutbox. A shoutbox is a kind of site wide comment area / sign-in book / chat area. It provides an easy and dynamic way to provide feedback for the site and its members.

Shoutboxes tend to allow only brief messages to be exchanged between users. However, to the generation that communicates in IM speak like lt me knO wen U R out of claS, this size limitation isn't really a problem.

I came across myshoutbox.com which allows you to painlessly setup a shoutbox on your site. I'm considering adding one to new design I put in place when I fully switch to the blogger Beta.

So, give it a try and give me a Shout-Out.
