To that point, we’ve invested a lot of time in learning new stuff for BlogShouts. While most of our outside projects still involve XHTML 1.1 and CSS 2, we’ve decided to go full-speed ahead with HTML 5 and CSS 3 for the site. Instead of web forms, we’re working with MVC v3, along with a brand new scripting method that Microsoft’s introduced to complement it called Razor. We’re sticking with jQuery because I love it, and with jQuery TOOLS from the Flowplayer folks because it’s proven useful. I might also experiment with some jQuery UI as we add more features to BlogShouts, and I’m quite sure Gabe will find new toys to play with as well.
Features … speaking thereof, I’d like to state that BlogShouts will remain a work in progress even after it’s been launched. We’re not going to go sticking “beta” text on the site or whatnot. The way I see it: all websites are in beta, all the time. If they’re not, they’re dead. We’ll be continuing to add to and improve BlogShouts long after it launches.
An event which, it should be added, will be happening in the not too distant future!
