Our ultimate goal was to combine the social and the collaborative into one platform. Today, we have succeeded. Welcome to Team.FM.</p> <p><img src="./images/out-of-beta/image.png" alt="Team.FM - Social network for web workers re-launched." width="209" height="204" class="align-right" style="margin: 0;"></p> <p>Tadagraph began as a simple real-time tool for micro-messaging collaboration a year ago. Our ultimate goal was to combine the social and the collaborative into one platform. Today, we have succeeded. Welcome to Team.FM. </p> <p>Team.FM is the social collaboration channel and co-working hub. Built around micro-messaging, with simple markup language, amazingly real-time, extandable and social. For your projects, for companies, offices, or just for your personally.</p> <h2 style="font-size: 21px; margin-top: 70px;">Introducing pricing model: The Good, the Great and the Awesome.</h2> <h3>Subscriptions & apps marketplace</h3> <ul> <li>There are several subscription packages available with bundled applications for your projects.</li> <li>Additional apps are available through our Apps Marketplace to customize and improve your project workflow even more.</li> <li>We also plan to introduce the value-adding paid subscriptions for Teams and Locations shortly.</li> </ul> <p>Check out the <a href="/plans">subscription plans</a> and <a href="/apps">initial apps</a>.</p> <p><img src="./images/out-of-beta/marketplace.png" alt="Team.FM - Subscriptions & apps marketplace" class="align-center" width="450" height="299"></p> <h3>Remains free.</h3> <ul> <li>The personal space, teams and locations are free. </li> <li>You can also install <strong>any</strong> app into your personal space for free.</li> <li>Participating in any project you're invited into is absolutely free too.</li> </ul> <p>In fact, we have pre-installed quite some apps into your personal space already. Enjoy.</p> <h3>Also free.</h3> In appreciation of your support, and tolerance of our pesky bugs while in beta, all current projects and apps will remain operational with no charge. <h3>Better than free - open-source.</h3> <p>Tadagraph isn't gone - it's open-source. Yes, we open-sourced the core of our system, the micro-messaging with markup, and will keep its name - Tadagraph. Go <a href="">grab it on GitHub</a>. </p> <p>There is even an instruction there how to export data from your Team.FM spaces into stand-alone copy of Tadagraph.</p> <p><img src="./images/out-of-beta/open-source.png" alt="Team.FM - Better than free - open-source!" class="align-center" width="475" height="315"></p> <h2 style="font-size: 21px; margin-top: 70px; margin-bottom: 30px;">New amazing social features.</h2> <p>We know we owe you quite a few blog posts on what was introduced on the collaboration side of Team.FM lately. will try to make it up shortly. Here are the bigger announcements of social goodness.</p> <h3>Social CRM.</h3> <p>You probably keep track of your contacts in an address book. At Team.FM, your personal space is not only a place to keep track of things to be done but also a social CRM - you can keep track of your interractions with your contacts and network.</p> <h3>Your profile & people following.</h3> <p>I know filling out your profile hurts. We've made it even worse - you have to add information field-by-field. But, it's for the greater good. You have field-by-field privacy control over your profile - you can set who from your contacts sees what.</p> <p>When people follow you, they add your profile to their address book and share their contact data with you. You may update your profile and all of your connections will receive the updated information right away.</p> <h3>Pull vs. Push on social data.</h3> <p>With the massive amount of content being pushed at you from various social platforms, we decided to give you the choice to do just the opposite - to pull from your contacts. For example, as your contacts add web links, you'll be auto-subscribed for feeds from their links and can unsubscribe any time.</p> <p>As in any CRM, you can add private fields for your contacts. Extrapolate it to links, and make great use of it. Even if people didn't add it themselves or are not yet on Team.FM at all.</p> <p><img src="./images/out-of-beta/social.png" alt="Team.FM - Pull vs. Push on social data" class="align-center" width="475" height="277"></p> <h3>Team Extranet.</h3> <p>Teams receive a public channel in addition to intimate private space they had. We call it "gazette" because it resembles a newspaper . Once you claim your team and become its administrator, you will be able to publish pieces from your internal social space to the world with just one click. </p> <p>When "the world" includes future hires or potential customers, this is a great way to introduce the life of your team. Corporate blogging isn't nearly as effective or social as Gazette for these purposes.</p> <h3>Teams follow teams.</h3> <p>Well, this is kind of a big deal. As a team's administrator, you can follow other teams; customers, producers , or just friendly companies in your town. The public messages of the teams you follow will be delivered to all your team members (and it means all your public messages will be delivered to all your followers too).</p> <p>As an individual, you can follow teams too, by the way. But I want you to go figure it out yourself.</p> <h2 style="font-size: 21px; margin-top: 70px;">And just couple more housekeeping announcements</h2> <h3>Photo of the day contest.</h3> <p>We decided that the best way of thanking our customers is to give these awesome people creating amazing things the front stage. So, you may get the home page of Team.FM if you win the Photo of the Day contest.</p> <p>Visit the <a href="/photo-of-the-day/">contest page</a> to learn more.</p> <h3>Voting for features, feedback & support.</h3> <ul> <li>Voting for features will be done on <a href="">Team.FM's Facebook page</a> (in disscussions area).</li> <li>Our support email address has changed to support [at] due to our name change.</li> </ul> <p>Thanks a lot for being with us. I hope you enjoy the wild ride we are about to partake on. And don't hesitate to leave your comment below. Well, you know, to give our team a hug or something.</p> Dissecting Tadagraph's Topics,2011:blog-article-dissecting-tadagraph-topics 2011-03-16T23:00:00.000Z <p>Tadagraph [Topics] are a great way to keep discussion going.

Here at Tadagraph we are also visual people and prefer watching to reading or hearing.</p> <p>We have created a short insightful video intro for Tadagraph, in which Sasha, our buzz man, will show what’s Tadagraph.</p> <p>And with no further ado, please sit back, relax and see how you can start collaborating in a totally different new way with Tadagraph!</p> <br /> <iframe src="" width="730" height="441" frameborder="0" webkitAllowFullScreen mozallowfullscreen allowFullScreen></iframe> 3-2-1, go!

Call for CouchDB developers,2011:blog-article-marketplace-for-couchapps 2010-12-05T23:00:00.000Z <p>We need a number of independent developers to help us test and finalize our marketplace (including some of the requirements in #cusdev manner). If you’re not scared away with “alpha” status of the marketplace code, hop on right now and we’ll get you started.</p> <p>Tadagraph - <a href="">distributed collaboration via micro-messaging</a></p> <p>Hey, fellow CouchDB lovers. We develop the web’s first online co-working space, enables remote team members group around conversations, organizing them in great and meaningful way to deal with.</p> <h2>CouchDb / CouchApps Marketplace</h2> <p>Our platform assumes all functionality be placed on top of conversations management framework in a form of CouchApps (well, with a few twists, but CouchApps it is in the bare-bone). We are busy building number of useful apps ourselves, but got to the point where our framework is stable enough to start inviting 3rd party developers to work alongside with us. The apps are expected to cover project management and social life needs of the team.</p> <p>Essentially, the business model we have pivoted to so far, is the freemium for the core framework, with the marketplace for additional apps. We would host all apps in our runtime wherever possible. The pricing would be subscription-based per project per month per app. The plan is to share revenue with developers, like Apple does it for iOS.</p> <h2>Call to action, CouchDb people</h2> <p>This said, we need a number of independent developers to help us test and finalize our marketplace (including some of the requirements in #cusdev manner). If you’re not scared away with “alpha” status of the marketplace code, hop on right now and we’ll get you started.</p> <p>There is obviously a number of issues we would need to debug, so we offer great benefits for early adopting developers. We have a good deal of apps in our mind too, so we may help with some ideas.</p> <p>If it sounds about right - reach us out at info (at) itteco (dot) com, and we’ll get going. We don’t need a big crowd of the developers while our marketplace is still in alpha, so act now to save your seat. </p>
