Prologue = Group Twittering

by Sachin Balagopalan on January 29, 2008 · Comments

The buzz this morning on the blogosphere and the number one story on Techmeme was Automattic’s release of a Twitter style service called Prologue. The gist of the whole thing is users can share short messages within an office/corporate structure or share private messages between groups of people.

… a way for each of us to share short messages about what we’re doing or working on internally, or private messages between groups of folks.

I posted a blog last year called Twitter, The Micro Manager’s Killer App where I was basically trying to figure out how Twitter could be used effectively in a work environment.

…you have a Twitter client (just like your email or instant message window) installed on your desktop at work. Every time you start or finish a task thats on your project plan you send a tweet to your twitter colleagues i.e manager, team members and anyone else who wants to follow you letting them know “what task you’re going to start working on or have finished or are in the middle of doing …

Looks like Prologue is that killer app I was looking for back then - well sorta anyway. On the surface it looks like Prologue is just that - sharing messages among groups or teams and of-course on any domain rather than a centralized one like Twitter. But it also looks like Automattic is also opening up the template to third parties so if people want to use it in a distributed environment they are “welcome” to hack it. IMO the fact that Prologue can be hacked to work within a decentralized realm is well and good. At least the admins won’t have to worry too much about server side load balancing and similar sort of issues. But I think the bang for the buck is the fact that you can work in virtual teams with this tool. If these micro-blogging tools have any chance to penetrate the work place then IMO Prologue is a good first pass.

Good stuff indeed and definitely worth following up on.
