A catch phrase will go here soon.

New Mahalo features: anyone can edit (even if not logged in) and anyone can create a new page (easily)

7/2/2008

Two very important features were launched on Mahalo today:

  1. Anyone can edit any page on Mahalo even if they are not logged in. This means if you don’t feel like logging in, but you want to add a fast fact to a page, or correct an error, you can do so quickly and easily. Of course, we check ever edit made in the system to make sure it is correct (i.e. Mahalo is Wikipedia with paid Fact Checkers).

  2. Anyone can easily create a new page in Mahalo. If you see a red link on a Mahalo page that means we need to have that page build. So, in the example below you can click on the “War Games” link on the Mathew Broderick page and start building it out.

This is a major step for Mahalo. We started as a very closed system while we perfected our page design. Then we opened up to registered users making changes and did that for six months. Since that has gone so well we’re opening up the site to unregistered users (who are tracked by their IP address, just like Wikipedia does).

Let me know if you have any questions.

Hello, my name is Jason. Welcome to my blog on the interwebs. You can reach me on twitter @jason and by email at jason@inside.com. My Skype is jasoncalacanis, and my mobile phone is 310-456-4900.

I only pick up numbers I recognize, and in terms of emailing me, the best strategy is to write short, blunt and to the point requests. I can quickly respond to short messages, and many times I simply don't have the time to read five page pitches. In terms of taking meetings, I only do that after reviewing an actual product (not a business plan). So, the best time to ping me is when you have mockups or an alpha site. I don't read business plans, and I've never written one.
