I've been looking at Scala and Lift while I was searching ways to apply 
Erlang's lightweight process approach to Java. So this is a very cool 
proposal and I'm willing to help as a mentor, so that it can finally 
force me to get my hands dirty on Scala!

However, this proposal could be made way more interesting and 
potentially disrupting if it were to include the Lift framework itself, 
and also consider not only enterprise micro-blogging, but also open 
federated microblogging [1] that was initiated by [2].

Micro blogging has become part of the daily activity of many people, and 
a scalable open source solution to run federated microblogging would be 
really nice, rather than wondering when will be Twitter's next downtime ;-)
