imJack trial?
« on: November 11, 2008, 02:32:41 PM »
I'm tempted to have a play with imJack - a product which provides a 'web 2.0 experience inside a walled garden' - basically allows you to configure a website using available modules (like a wiki, poll tool, document manager). There is a flash demo at http://www.imjack.com/

If you are interested in playing then let me know. We've been offered a chance to try it out ...

Clearly what I'd want to do with it is bit different to what it is being marketted for - but if the tool fits ...

I suspect you are right - what this offers I think, which I've not seen anywhere else (but must admit I've not looked that hard), is all sorts of tracking facilities (developed for paranoid child protection reasons but may have other uses too). Also - it provides a secure environment which the team's administrator can control who has access to - which may be useful for some purposes.
