The First Alpha Invites are in the Wild!
Earlier today we relased our first 100 Alpha invites! We have chosen a range of people for this alpha phase, from developers through to designers, data mining experts, monitoring enthusiasts and news curators. What we wanted to do was get feedback from as wide an audience as possible and not just those who have a geeky interest for programming and data. We are trying to make our system as usable as possible for everyone. Hopefully we've got some way towards that now!
Now we do understand that there is a LOT of demand for access to our system and we will be releasing additional invites as soon as we have some feedback from our initial alpha users and are sure that it is reliable enough for higher volumes. We'll also work on the feedback that we receive and make the system as strong, simple and reliable as we possibly can!
