    Well now, this could be interesting... A full social media suite with collaboration, wikis, customization by user, etc...

    I can think of lots of ways to use something like this... Auto Social Sites, Centralized autoblog farms, competition to hub/webpaint/squidoo that you can monitize on your own....

    What ideas do you have about twisting this into something profitable?

    after it comes out or before? before i would offer it to web designers and iframe an email submit for more info, then redirect them to that link. for after it comes out, i would harvest their emails for an email campaign, then send them back to another one of my sites with yet another email submit.

    im stuck on godcpa, its hard to not use it ;)

    I'd use Elgg. It's free.
