Create your own online pile of junk! Plemp allows you to upload/put stuff
on a single canvas, for sharing, collaging or any purpose you can think of.

== Features

* Uploading of image/music/video/text files
* Adding content by means of pasting text
* Syntax highlighting of source code files
* (Re)arranging of the files
* Some visual effects for eye candy purposes
* Distributed management of the arrangement, i.e. everybody viewing the
Plemp page will (with some delay) see the same arrangement

The following Ruby librares are required:

== Installation

For now, Plemp! is in a developing state and not ready for site-wide
