Today, the Bonfire team is asking for *your* help with beta testing. Bonfire still needs a lot of work - be it bugs, federation, missing features, configurability and user experience - but that's the point, we decided to launch the playground at this gnarly stage with the specific intention of moving toward the 1.0 release as a community.
In a few days' time we'd like to invite you to experiment with a 'playground' instance of Bonfire, the federated social networking toolkit for communities. Lots of what you'll see in the Bonfire beta will be recognisable from other social and/or federated apps. There is some functionality that may be a little different with Bonfire as well.
We're now days away from the beta release of Bonfire, a federated app toolkit. When beta users get their hands on it, however, they might be confused wait, this looks like just another microblogging app! haven't we already got enough of those?
