Pioneering a new medium: Micro-Forums. Chat based forums designed for modern web

Scrollback is pioneering a new medium – “micro-forums”. We are creating the fastest, most friction-less way to build and sustain open communities through text chat. Inspired by Twitter and IRC, Scrollback transforms forums into micro-forums - making them lightweight, real-time and built for mobile, where shorter messages are preferred. Scrollback will replace forums - just as tweeting has eclipsed blogging. Micro-forums look and feel similar to group chat. However, unlike Facebook Chat and WhatsApp which are designed for small, private groups of friends, Scrollback is group chat for large, open communities that need persistent conversations that can be moderated, shared, embedded, browsed and searched. Paul Graham said of Twitter: “It’s really more of a discovery than an invention; that square was always there in the periodic table of protocols, but no one had quite hit it squarely.” In the Graham periodic table, IRC, forums and Scrollback occupy adjacent squares.
