Aggreg8 – Home for IT Pros November 14, 2006Posted by Ced in Info, Services, Tech.
Aggreg8 is a social networking and collaboration space for the IT community. As Betanews puts it, Aggreg8 aims “to become a MySpace-like forum for developers to share scripts, tools, or best practices, or even to just connect with others within the profession.”
“Inside you can keep track of your trusted network, find others through your network with similar interests or situations. Then you can collaborate with anyone in the community inside our working groups. We even allow you to create your own working groups, choosing if you want to collaborate with the whole community or collaborate in private working groups. All the expected tools are there for collaboration, allowing you to create postings, post files, share events. And you can tag, rate reply to any posting.” [Aggreg8.net]
Some argue that this is similar in concept to the existing Experts Exchange, an IT Professional collaboration network. I believe we yet have to see what advantages Aggreg8 has to offer. By the way, you do need to use Passport to register.
