Was able to get the text of a previous post into the MyStatusTool editor window, but had tags appear in the post. Did some experimenting, then I could not decode the HTML entities - frustrating! (Did an edit on the imported text, removed tags, added link manually.
Dave Winer talks about bootstrapping a federated 140-character loosely coupled network. I think MyStatusTool fits the bill!
