Illumen (or Joe), a senior editor at The AMCP Tech Blog, was among one of our very first beta testers. Illumen has been awesome in providing us with many valuable feedback and suggestions, and he has been great at being one of our “gate keepers” in giving out invites to our invitation-only closed beta 🙂
He just wrote a review on Diigo (http://amcptwo.blogspot.com/2005/12/diigo.html). Some quote from his post:
“I was given an invite into Diigo’s BETA, and as soon as I logged into the website I was struck by how smooth and well put-together it was. After several days of intensive testing, I realized that Diigo was an excellent extension, quite ready to leave BETA stage. I also realized that it was review material.”
Illumen, thanks for your many feedback and review!
The first public review on Diigo by Steven Cohen at Library Stuff just came out http://www.librarystuff.net/2005/12/diigo.html. It’s pretty neat to see Diigo’s name start showing up in Google, Technorati, and other search engines.
Steven is part of the Web2.0 workgroup and among the very first users to preview Diigo. He did a very nice job describing the social bookmarking functions of Diigo, and hopes this coverage will start to bring us more exposure and users. Thank you, Steven!
Steven mentioned in his review that he would like to see more social features built into the application. Indeed, we have intended to make Diigo a great social platform.
Since Diigo’s innovative in situ highlighting / annotation features may not be totally apparent to new users at the first glance, we should work even harder to bring out those key features to users’ attention. Well, that’s part of the valuable feedback and lesson learned in our beta testing.
