Weblogs, Web Sites, and Lots More

What is Conversant?

Conversant is designed to help groups of all sizes work together by making it easy for them to share ideas, questions, files, and knowledge. It also has lots of features that make it very easy for a small group - or an individual - to publish dynamic web sites.

Conversant is software for your Internet (or Intranet) server. Standard features include tools for managing news pages and journals (weblogs), feature-rich event calendars, online discussion forums (with file enclosure capabilities), tools for publishing entire web sites, email and mailing-list integration, and many other services that are great for all kinds of business, project, and personal web sites and communication-centers.

Free-Conversant is Macrobyte's web site hosting service, based on Conversant. We offer everything from free sites, to inexpensive domain hosting, to dedicated Conversant (and traditional) servers.

What people are saying about Conversant...

This is the part I love about your software/company -- every time I ask a question, you reply with options, options and more options.
-- Brian Carnell

I'm beginning to use it and conversant is great. Congratulations Seth and Macrobyters.
-- David Harrod

The more I dig the more I'm impressed at just how well thought out Conversant is. This is really powerful stuff.
-- Duncan Smeed

Wow, This is what I called Super Charged Manila. Thanks for showing what is possible and great team work.
-- Paul Chow

Thanks, as always, for such a rapid response from the Macrobyte 'team'. You guys are great!
-- Duncan Smeed

I have fallen in love with your stylesheet tool. My intentions, however, are strictly honorable. I just did some things with h1, h2, and h3 even though I *still* don't really know how to code a stylesheet. Fantastic.
-- Mark Morgan

Conversant's Weblog II is incredible -- it's not done yet, but is already one of the most powerful online journaling tools around.
-- Greg Pierce

Power and flexibility! Five years, and I still can't get enough of this system.
-- Seth Dillingham


Stereoscopages: Another Great Conversant Site

Stereoscopages - The word evokes thoughts of imagery, sound, multiple-dimensions, photographs, and many other things... and yet in reality, it's not a word at all. In reality, it's closer to an emotional description of one of the most amazing artforms you'll ever see.

Katia Martin-Maresco, wife of Macrobyte's own Philippe Martin, actually invented this artform herself!

We're very proud to be able to host this site, which describes and showcases Katia's creations.

Don't miss Katia's own explanation of Stereoscopages, and make sure you visit the Mosaic.

What Is Conversant?

Want to know more about Conversant? With the generous help of Mark Morgan (of Voices of Unreason), we've completely re-written Conversant's product literature. Please let us know what you think. Is it clear enough? Does it help you to understand what Conversant is all about (not just Free-Conversant)?
