Anyone recall an early group blog/reality show, name riffed on 'cereal'?

The Lore thread reminded me of something else from that era of the web, one of the first group blogs I encountered, and now I am annoyed because I can't remember the name or more details. It was a bunch of interconnected art/tech/media people, mostly based in the SF Bay Area I believe. The name riffed off 'cereal' in some way, but all the keywords are too general to fish anything up out of google.

As I recall it, the blogs were hosted on a single site -- it was definitely an attempt to bring a little bit of reality show aesthetic to blogging. A big grid, I think, and you could click on the latest journal entry from whoever. I think it was probably before 2000 because I don't think I was in the Bay Area yet (probably would have been less interesting if I was), and I have a dim sense that the Webbies featured at least once -- maybe someone going to them? So it was maybe 1997 or soon after. Don't think it lasted very long, at least as active updates.

That's it! Cyberorganic. They have an archive page pointing at it, but the domain is long gone. Internet Archive remembers, though:
