Everything Development Company's "Everything" is a MySQL/Perl-based information management system for entering, linking, and retrieving information that can also be used to create "writable" web sites. Everything's community-building features include a "Chatterbox" to enable realtime communication between users and a voting system that helps establish trust among users.
The Everything home page provides a working example of the "writable" platform in action, and also features news, poetry and commentary from the Web at large.
Other example implementations include: a collaborative writer's
workshop application, a system for tracking client browsing patterns, a collaborative database of pop-culture and a travel advice website.
