I got this mail today from GROU.PS – a service I had registered for months ago didn’t come back to check it out. Its cool that Yahoo is now synchronised 🙂 I will soon check it out. Meanwhile folks anyone interested in a groups 2.0 concepts – register there and let me know.
By groups 2.0 I personally mean using RSS, tags (blog posts, flickr, delicious bookmarks) wikis and email effectively so that the people in a group use the entire internet and work as a group all the time i.e work and think as a group. Its no longer just uploading files and emails! I don’t see any groups service offering this as of now. No one is harnessing the power of the web as of now.
Here is the email I got from them. Would been good if they could have used my name instead of just saying ‘early adopters’! But you know what I am happy somewhere someplace someone actually called me an early adopter.
Dear early adopters,
Now it’s very easy to synchronize your existing Yahoo! Groups with our
services; import group members and archive mails in our Talks section in
one simple step. Here is what you need to do:
1) Sign in @ http://grou.ps/authentication.do
2) Select your grou.p from the left pane (you need to have admin
3) Follow the “Grou.p Administration” link
4) Click on “Wrapper” button
5) Enter your Yahoo! account information (username and password) and Yahoo!
Group name (nothing stored)
