During the month of Elul, a web app to help you atone.  Like Bible Times, only nerdier.
The G-dcast eScapegoat roams the Internet collecting sins before Yom Kippur.  
This web app is inspired by the Yom Kippur rituals from the time of the Temple in which a goat is symbolically burdened with sins of the Jewish people.
In the app, this actions is symbolized by a whimsical animated goat receiving the sins that users share with it.
