If all goes well, we plan to launch a beta on February 5. This will be an old school beta meaning the product will perform and look mostly primetime but we hope to get your feedback and will be adding some important features as we go.
What can you expect? I have written some stuff here and there. As I have mentioned, we are trying to create an application that you want to look at and work with every day. It is easy to add events (we have a very slick natural language parser that even your Mom will like) and it is easy to build up a small social network with whom you can share all or parts of your life.
When you think about it, a calendar is very much like a simple blog or journal and we anticipate that people (and application developers) will catch on to this potential. Ready to put your running log online? How about vacation notes that you can revisit down the road?
30B is also a handy way to passively communicate by letting people know where you’ll be or where you’ve been as well as a DLA (digital lifestyle aggregator) gluing together all the pieces of your online presence (e.g. photos, blogs, myspace, and the like).
There are only a handful of people using it right now and so far so good. It takes a long time to build a product and we hope that our beta testers will enjoy contributing to something new and fun!
