A student (who?) recommended Posterous after the lecture yesterday.
It seems like a nifty tool for creating a blog and perhaps especielly so for a family or a group. Just send a mail (with an attachement) and it gets posted to your posterous blog:
"Posterous lets you post things online fast using email. You email us at email@example.com and we reply instantly with your new posterous blog. If you can use email, you can have your own website to share thoughts and media with friends, family and the world. [...] You can attach any type of file and we'll post it along with the text of your email. We'll do smarter things for photos, MP3's, documents and video"
