Now that we've had a chance to catch our breath from the launch of Expert Labs, it's a good time to take a quick look at how this new initiative has been received. Here are a few early reports on our effort from across the web:
Dash said the goal of the Expert Labs incubator is not create a new social network, but to “us[e] open web technologies [to] make it easy for policy makers and scientists to connect with one another using the web sites and programs they’re already familiar with” such as Facebook and Twitter. Further inspirations for the program include the innovative digital arts program Eyebeam and Peer-to-Patent, which allows citizens to help find relevant information for assessing patent applications.
Anil has been and will always be a valuable part of the Six Apart family and we all wish him great success with Expert Labs -- something he is really passionate about. Congratulations on a successful launch, Anil -- we can't wait to see the great things EL accomplishes!
