Narrowing Scope

May 18, 2009

Since my last post, I've narrowed the scope of my project down a great deal. The main reason was to make it more accessible to first-time users who would probably otherwise be overwhelmed by the number of things you could do on the site. There are related problems associated with trying to bite off too much from the very beginning:

Last week I launched the narrowed site into private beta, inviting only a dozen or so people. I've already received a laundry list of features/change requests, and I'll start opening the site up more broadly when I feel as though I've addressed them adequately.

I'm also happy to report that I've been chosen as a finalist for fbFund, which affords me some money to advertise on Facebook. More details and a list of the other finalists here.
