I just finished up a mini-tour of ideaShrub that I think everyone will find of interest. The tour comes in the form of a mini-screencast for everyone to watch. This is my first attempt at making a screencast and I think it went fairly well (save for the lack of voice over and mouse cursor, but I’m working on fixing that for future ‘casts).
In this tour I cover a couple different aspects of the new site:
- A user’s main profile page
- A user’s shrub list (and the Create A Set and Create A Shrub widgets)
- A user’s contacts list
- All communities
- All people
- All shrubs
- Options, straight to Profile Editing
- A user’s main profile page (again)
- Shrub Editing (I saved the best for last!)
This portion includes moving leaves, creating leaves, editing leaves, navigation, changing text attributes (bold, underline, strikethrough), indenting, undenting)
As a note, the application itself is still a long ways off from being complete – I expect to be making a lot of progress within the next couple weeks and possibly launching at the beginning of July.
So, without further ado:
ideaShrub Screencast (06/14/05)
(3 Minutes 50 Seconds – Approx. 5Mb)
NOTE: Best if watched at 800×600, it gets kind of ‘warped’ otherwise.
