For those of you that know me, I tend to be the person that likes to facilitate collaboration and communication. I’m the guy that makes sure that the right people are in the room, working together rather than reinventing the wheel every five feet.
So I was looking around the net and I stumbled across http://www.wamily.com. After a few e-mails to the support address I finally got in and I have to say that I’m impressed.
The developers of this site have brought a lot of fundamentals of collaboration to the table in a web 2.0 way using ajax and update requests like you wouldn’t believe. Additionally, for those of you familiar with Facebook, this takes it to the next step by creating collaborative groups that enhance group interaction. They even let you share your own files in collaborative albums, post your thoughts on wikis, and talk in message boards. All of this happens in your ‘wamily’ as they like to call it.
Needless to say, I have to say that in terms of a social networking web application this does an incredible job of facilitating interactions unlike some other failed systems of the past (friendster, etc.)
