We're re-imagining mailing lists and community discourse for the age of social media.

Murmur is a new tool for group communication that blends concepts from mailing lists, forums, and social media. Now members can choose how they receive emails and collaboratively moderate discussion.

Murmur is a research project from the Haystack Group at MIT CSAIL.
