Our network has some structural problems. Information is too scattered and fragmented. I'd almost suspect it of being intentionally alienating, if I didn't have so much faith in the architects. This is a quick note, not a complete list...1. We can't find contacts easily
--every other social network allows fast look ups through email.
2. We can't make friends easily
--see a comment you like? It takes three clicks to add the author as a friend...
3. We can't find anything easily
--our information is sorted by tags, and by power ratings, and by some other star system I've seen, but when I look up a new contact and want to review their evidence, I have to find one tiny link on the right side that shows how many blogs they've posted.
4. Everything we do, we have to do again
--Add a piece of evidence, then tag it, then go back and log it if it completes a mission, then go publicize it if you want it to be noticed... And apparently there's a wh*** parallel monitoring system for tracking the feeds of the people you choose to mentor..?
I love the purpose and potential for our network. But I have misgivings about its design.
