Long time no see…

SHARE’s blog has been remarkably quiet lately. Too quiet. The good news is that more news is coming, finally. Please stay tuned…

    Just a few questions about upcoming news/features:My initial review of the Share Beta indicates some terrific possibilities, however I don’t see any obvious way to create “custom” collections. Any chance there might be some kind of tagging that would allow for this?Also, I store and organize a great number of FLV and PDF files that are related to each other – hence the custom collection. But since there is already an ability to store and play SWF files – is there anything in the works for FLV?

  2. Thanks for the feedback. Support for folders and/or tagging is definitely our #1 feature request, so we’ve been thinking and debating how to best deal with the issue.I’d like to hear more about the specific use cases you have for your custom collections. Is this just to make organizing your files and finding them easier? Or do you want to be able to share the collection directly with others? Or is there something else you had in mind?I ask because one of the things we struggle with in our design discussions is the fact that the 1GB limit means it is difficult for users to scale up past 150 or so files. Tagging systems don’t really shine unless you have very large data sets to work with, like flickr, digg, etc. Knowing what real users want to do with their collections would help.
