    Also released Oct 2, Luunr!

    Luunr is a realtime discussion platform that encourages users to talk to people beyond their facebook friends list.

    In time for tonight's presidential debate, Luunr has also included a featured page with discussions around the candidates and the overall event.

    The UI for Luunr was built from the ground up to scale while still remaining simple. All communication occurs via websockets (thanks to Node.js). Users can view and start conversations anonymously, but must login to contribute (this prevents trolling).

    There's also a full write-up on The Chaos Collective's website with more info:
