Clouds, Cloudscape and Cloudstreams

A Cloud starts off as some text written by one author, on it's own page. Other people can add extra content, tags, comments, links, and embed multimedia. The Cloud becomes a focus for discussion and collaboration.

A Cloudscape is a collection of Clouds related to a theme. Clouds can be in one or many Cloudscapes.

A Cloudstream contains notifications about things that are happening on Clouds & Cloudscapes.

All content on a CloudEngine site is open and viewable to the world by default.
