Inviting the First Mavenns

This week, we sent out the first set of invites to people. Mavenn is still minimal but usable. We have working infrastructure for several kinds of information streams. The display is spartan, some actions and possibilities are not quite obvious. But its heartening to see people appreciate little tricks with bookmarklets and ease of use.

It is fulfilling to make a sustained push to wrap todo items, close issues and work towards a release. Most importantly, our friends have something tangible to view and interact, which makes it easy for them to point out where we suck and what we can do better.

In train-speak, we are just getting underway and still switching tracks, but I don’t mind tooting the horn.
