As you will have noticed (unless you are a new user), MIKE2.0 just received a major facelift. We have spent the last 6 weeks up until now introducing new, exciting functionality and a major improvement in the look at feel of the site. Here is a summary of the major changes:
- New integrated skin across the wiki, blogs and social bookmarking, enabling common navigation and common search
- Single sign on from your wiki account with bookmarks, so there is no need any more to log in twice
- Improved navigation menu on the MIKE2.0 wiki, giving you easy access to the key pages of the site
- New rating of bookmarks and commenting on bookmarks to bring out the bookmarks most valued by the IM community
- Social networking where you can share your social profile and connect with other practitioners and build the IM community
- Upgrade of blogs to WordPress 2.5 with improved blog post management functionality
You will have also seen a new “Partners” feature box on the bottom left. We want to thank our supporters and would like to give them an opportunity to feature their site. If you are interested in becoming a supporter for MIKE2.0, please get in touch with the MIKE2.0 Leadership Team.
What’s in the works? We want to provide single sign on with the group blog so that you can comment without having to enter your name/email address every time. We are also looking to improve how we showcase some of our key contributors. And we would like to improve office integration and WYSIWYG editing functionality.
In the mean time, enjoy the new site, tell your colleagues about it or blog about it.
I also want to say a special thank you to the people who made this major facelift happen: Alex Papadopoulos, Aran Dunkley, Jarrod Poynton, Pete Dakin and Sean McClowry. Thanks for your hard work.
