Building an App Engine based Open Microblogging tool

I’m looking at building an Google App Engine based μblogging tool - in other words a / clone (which is a twitter clone).

I would implement the OpenMicroBlogging spec so it could talk to servers.

I’m looking at building it on top of the code (source is on github). Currently still needs a lot of work - it has no followers implementation to start with.

If anyone else is interested in joining in to develop this **leave me a comment! **I’ll post updates as to how I got - for now I must get back to writing reports :)
