As you can imagine our team has developed and gained extensive experience in strategy, product definitions, project management, product development, deployment of all our products. We are set up to allow you to tap into that expertise. Here are some of areas where you might consider getting our help.
Strategy: What are blogs? What is the culture of the blogosphere? Should we have a blog? Should we post to blogs? Should they be internal or external? Who should post? What should they post? What are the PR ramifications? How about the legal ramifications? Where do we start?
We can help you think through a comprehensive strategy and implementation plan for your business or service.
Technology: What is an aggregator, and do we need one? Which one should we choose? Web based or client based? How do we deploy it? How do we train our users? What are all the other technologies that are involved? What is the role of sites such as Technorati and Google? What technology resources are available in the open source arena and the commercial arena?
If you are tackling such questions you might want to get us involved. We can help you understand what you need and don’t need, where to get it, and how to use it.
Protocols, Standards and TLA’s (three letter acronyms): RSS? OPML? HTML? SSL? Secure Feeds? Atom? Ajax? What the heck are all these, how do they affect us? More than that, exactly what is a valid RSS document? How do I verify the validity of my OPML? What about OPML 1.0 and 2.0? RSS 1.0 and 2.0? Try XML name spaces if you really want a headache.
This area is one of huge confusion and complexity. We have years of working, down and dirty with them. We might be able to help you navigate, bootstrap your team’s learning curve or just explain it all.
Software development: We love to build software. Java, PHP, HTML, Ruby, Ruby on Rails - we have knowledge and hands on experience building complex systems with all of these. And we are all over agile software development, offshore development and project management.
If you need help implementing or integrating, evaluating or solving problems, maybe we can help you.
