I can echo this.  I have for almost a decade used tth, ttm's  
predecessor, to convert my online lab notebook, which has a file per  
day, from LaTeX to HTML on the fly via a CGI script.  I hesitate to  
call this a blog within Phil's earshot ;-) but it has many of the  
same characteristics.  It shouldn't be difficult to make a blog or  
wiki engine do the same, given access to its source.

On a related note, are there other people Out There who use LaTeX to  
record their daily activities, especially in a research context?  I'm  
working on a scheme that would allow entries in such an online lab  
notebook to be acceptable in patenting etc and would like to know  
what interest there is, if any.
