Note to self: perhaps a way to make sites seem more communal is to put space on a page that lets you know who else is looking at the page at that moment.
An ad tags send the id cookie to an app that keeps a hash of pages containing a cache of users that age out after 1 minute. The app returns a list of first names ( with city or zip )only.

Glenn in Cedar Bluff
Brian in Farragut
Amy in Old City
