Week 21 changes

May 21st, 2007

The changes in this week are:

  • Improvements in Reader: Arrow for the resource title, instructions to use the arrows and other visual improvements.
  • Added Last viewed lists in the reader. The idea is to help people to find other list or go to the main page
  • Bugs correction and speed optimization ( clean the sessions table 7MB with rake db:sessions:clear RAILS_ENV=produciton)
  • I’m working in some big changes. The number fo visits is growing every day and the indexing in searcing engines finally works fine.

    Please, leave your feedback…

Week 20 changes

May 15th, 2007

I have been working in two improvements:

  • Now you can subscribe to a RSS feed in any tag: I thought this will be a good thing to follow special tags feeds.
  • Improved visibility in main page lists cloud: Is a small change, but now with the underline its easy to follow the lists. I found that there were some people visiting the main page and not going to any specific list. I imagine that was due to a dificult reading
  • Added links to publish from the list reader in Digg and Reddit

Week 17 changes

April 27th, 2007

I have made some improvements:

  • The main page now is Lists Cloud. I thought that will give a global view of all the lists
  • Now we have the favorites and email options on the reader
  • Improvements to help google index the pages
  • Option for editors to view only the private lists
  • Editors can create a resource without adding it to a list
  • Corrected some bugs

I have added 7 more lists and working on more. Remember to Join and we need editors.


Some improvements

April 15th, 2007

The L-exp Alpha is progressing. I have fixed some errors and added some funtionalities. The main are:

  • Correct an error on the Join process
  • Added tagging to resources, before was only for lists
  • Tags now appear in alphabetical order in the Tag Cloud
  • Improved webcrawler efficiency by adding the noframes option on the frames pages
  • Other stability and error fixes

At this moment we have 55 lists and working on more. Remember to Join and we need editors.

Feel free to add comments if you find bugs or you have suggestions.

Want to be an editor?

April 5th, 2007

We need more editors to increase the number of lists. The areas we are thinking are:

  • Linux
  • Mac
  • Windows
  • development and programming: php, java, RoR, VB, C#, …..
  • Online services
  • Computers and Internet
  • Science
  • Culture

This are our ideas, but feel free to write us If you want to include any other category. Please send us your ideas about the area and we will talk about. Before sending the email please ask for an invitation.

L-exp starts public Alpha

March 28th, 2007

First I should start explaining what is Lists of experiencies (L-exp).

I made an interesting about page that explains the main points. Please take a look at it.

After 3 months of work today  I open  the new application to the general public. It is in alpha phase, meaning that I will like to see how it works and receive some feedback from the users. I hope this way of sharing knowledge will be useful. And I invite to anyone to send me their thoughts about the idea and I will try to improve it.

If you want to try it as a user just go to the Signup form and I will send you an invite. Signing in is free ( and will be free) and has the advantage to use most of the features of the application ( comments, favorites, emails, send invites, etc…).

Also If you want to be an editor and you have some ideas to convert in L-exp then send me an email explaining what do you want to write about.

Also you can leave any comments in this blog.

I finish this initial post making a reference to the main actor of this project. The Ruby on Rails  community for their help and their great web platform.
