Much to the consternation of my old-school techie friends, I’ve always been a big fan of forums. I think I came to the Internet too late – relatively speaking – to appreciate the whole “why download the interface” thing, even in eircom-bitrate Ireland
Of course these days we have AJAX, and we’re rightly reverting to downloading the interface once and only pushing data to users when it’s needed. That’s what Tangler is essentially about, although the lads in charge are trying to peg it more as a social app.
I’d like to spend some time on there and try it out properly, but I’d prefer to do so with people I know, so if you’d like to try it too, send me an email at email@example.com and I’ll send you an invite. If you’re already there, join me in Ireland please.
