We are the PlusNet Web Portal team and this is our new playground. More specifically, I am Tamlyn - a web developer - and this is my first blog post.
Prepare yousrselves for some exciting news... but first a word or two of backgound.
Here at PlusNet Towers we have a bunch of plasma screens on each floor which are used to keep us updated on what's going on in other departments. It's a nice touch. But then it struck us: why not keep everyone updated on what's going on? Not just employees but subscribers and potential subscribers. And their aunties. We looked into the possibility of having plasma screens installed in every home but that turned out to be too expensive.
So this is the next best: a blog to share our joys, successes, failures & frustrations with our fellow colleagues, PlusNet subscribers and the world at large.
You are witnessing to the dawn of a new age.
In time we hope to bring you more than just information. As we develop new tools and features we will put up alpha versions here for you to play with and give us feedback on. These alphas will be followed by live public betas on the portal (in a GMail stylee) . This has the dual advantages of getting new features out to you sooner, and allowing you to influence the development process with suggestions & bug reports.
The world will never be the same again.
PS I promise to cut down on the unnecessary sensationalism after this initial post ;-)
