firef.ly goes public beta

We are pushing firef.ly into a public beta today.   Exciting stuff for us here at betaworks.   Firef.ly is a light weight messaging layer that sits on top of a site — permitting a real time perspective on who is where on your site and basic chat.   It’s intentionally light weight — no sign in, no install for users — one line of java script for the web site publisher (available here: http://firef.ly/install).  You can use firefly on this page — just slide the slider to the left and have fun.

Couple of thoughts here — first this is another layer application, something i have posted about before, second this is for me a return to days when you could just chat on any page — without the encumbrances of today, captcha’s, sign in etc.   Its a layer of the now web that we are experimenting with.    Yes yes i know it might get some spam — but web site owners have the ability to ban spammers and our hope is that the lightweight, spontaneous nature of firef.ly may open up some new conversations.    As it did a while back when we first trialed it on a Scripting post.    Last point — try the twitter feature — it sends out a message to your followers that you are on a particular page, its pretty powerful.   Have fun.
