i spent this morning looking at swinney.org and i see a lot of similarity in the UI concepts between that and citynoise that really strive to encourage contribution and ease-of-browsing- and for that i am just really impressed by both sites. i think citynoise's level of interface maturity is due to a lot more thought and coding energy being put into it, or at least the sort+amount of energy+thought that helps me enjoy a website more.
i especially like the ability to browse frm different time-based criteria (recent posts, recent comments, recent views)- that sort of real time site interaction...
