[aprssig] APRS web messaging

I keep thinking about building a page like this.  I'm going to have to write
the services behind it at some point, anyway.  My biggest concern has been
avoiding unauthorized use.  How do you go about authenticating everyone,
without having some sort of labor-intensive signup process with a human
reviewing everything?
I figure you could have the system give a new user a code that must be sent
via RF into the network to authenticate themselves.  It'd be inconvenient
for the user if they're not set up for it or don't have a local IGate, but
it doesn't require intervention.

While running aprs software, connect to the internet and send and receive
messages.  I am not aware of an existing web page.  If you find one please
pass it along.

Just brainstorming here, I don't even know if this is possible or desirable
but hopefully someone can answer this for me. Is there a web page that
exists that I can send and receive APRS messages on? Is this technically
possible? There are ways in my head that seem like it would be possible, but
I wasn't sure if something already existed before I start poking at it
myself (yea, like I need another project) 

Thanks and 73 de N1VLV,
