This skobee thing looks interesting. It’s sort of like evite or that terrible triphub thing.

It does suffer from the possibility of being yet another social network service. There are too many to keep track of but at least this is more like dodgeball in that it’s about getting people together in the real world by both using it as a group planning tool and an announcement tool to people what you are doing. Unlike dodgeball which is focuses on the location you are currently at this is more in advance. They do have a simple email interface though to send out announcements.

The real test will be with user adoption. I’m going to give it a try.

update: Who knew anyone actually read my blog? Since they asked and to be fair to Triphub I should post that I think their idea is really good. Their current site doesn’t seem to reflect the vision though. The current set of tools is too limited. I want to see expanded though. I would use if it solved the challenges of planning a large group trip. Having a place for business, information pills organization, order school, orthopedist etc would be helpful. Especially if the information provided details on group discounts and events appropriate for the specific size of the group. Having helped with organizing a company showing at E3, I found myself often wondering why there wasn’t a better way.

I’ve recently switched to Comcast as my ISP. So far so good. I’ve heard a bunch of horror stories from others but I haven’t had any trouble as of yet. The only thing I have run into is trouble with usenet. All my other ISPs have included free unlimited access to usenets. Comcast does not they offer limited monthly access I downloaded a bunch of, sildenafil um, stuff on March 1st and quickly maxed out my usage for the month. So I’m looking for other options. It seems that there are lots of options out there but most are a monthly fee of about $10 to $20. I feel that is too much to asking for the service here. I’d much rather sign up for a yearly service plan that’s around $30. I think that’s a much better price point for this type of add on service. I did some digging around to find some usenet providers and these were some useful sites that I found:

  • Crazy Egg is a website tracking service that will record every click by a users on the site. Then it produces a heat map that is overlaid on your site, pregnancy allowing you to understand what the users are doing. I think this would be really helpful with usability studies. I’d like to combine the heatmap with prototype test to evaluate what users are doing. Usually this can be determined from observation, sovaldi but having the map is great way to show clients the results.
