As part of our redevelopment plans, we have decided to create a development blog for Biofind. The blog should allow us to communicate our plans for the future of Biofind, as well as giving the community a public means of talking with us about the site. First of all some news from the Biofind office:
Biofind is on Twitter! - Check it out : http://twitter.com/biofind/ For those new to Twitter, it is an online service which allows users to push updates about themselves, from a browser, mobile phone or instant messenger, to a group of followers. The followers are alerted and sent this update and can respond if desired. For followers of Biofind, the latest rumors and gossip from our infamous rumor mill can be pushed straight to your mobile device, or IM client. Furthermore, followers can post their own short rumors to the feed for others to see and discuss.
Without any public announcements or promotion the feed already has over 300 followers. Whether you're new to the Twitter game, or an old hat, sign up and get connected to the rumor mill!
New Biofind Update
The Biofind website is currently being considered for a visual and functional overhaul. Primary objectives of this redevelopment are to make the site more user friendly, to reduce the impact of trolls and to embrace new online content distribution methods, such as Digg, StumbleUpon and so forth. We've thought about what we want in the redesign, now we're interested in what you want. At the beginning of next week we will be publishing a survey to give you, the users of this site, an opportunity to tell us what we're doing well, what we're doing wrong and how you think we can improve the site.
Thank you all for reading and we look forward to hearing your comments,
The Biofind Team
