ShareDB looks quite interesting. We wanted similar capabilities but without a central authority, thus automerge was born.

We've been wanting to try a CRDT-based implementation with Webstrates for some time, but haven't found a suitable implementation, so this looks very promising!

Any particular reason why you choose CRDT over OT?

I'm told OT gets very complicated, and I hoped a good CRDT would be general-purpose enough to cover a variety of applications and domains. Also, I like not needing a central server to coordinate action. Would love to compare notes -- feel free to reach out to me on twitter at the same nick.
