This is cool. I want my own bumplist. We need one of these.
Sign up for a listserve if you don't participate you get unsubscribe automatically. It is cool but the bumplist site only let a few folks belong. In an ideal world, I want the number of acceptable users to grow and shrink adaptively based on the time to subscribe/ re-subscribe or the action response rate.
I want to be able to add it to lots of sites, my blog or my advocacy campaigns. In an ideal world the bumplist would also have some auto-magic click thru tracking for campaigns and actions. With each action "refreshing" membership allowing self organizing efforts to blast out an email to like minded friends on the bumplist.
It would be great if it could include a special tag.

The dream bumplist would refresh bumplist membership if readers take "action" and knock off members as they get crowed out by more active activists. Check it out. You will be bumped pretty quickly and it will give you a sense of how the tool works.
BumpList is a mailing list aiming to re-examine the culture and rules of online email lists. BumpList only allows for a maximum amount of subscribers so that when a new person subscribes, the first person to subscribe is "bumped", or unsubscribe from the list. Once subscribed, you can only be unsubscribed if someone else subscribes and "bumps" you off. BumpList actively encourages people to participate in the list process by requiring them to subscribe repeatedly if they are bumped off. The focus of the project is to determine if by attaching simple rules to communication mediums, the method and manner of correspondences that occur as well as behaviors of connection will change over time.
