A new home for the Octopz blog

July 31, 2007

The Pond

The Octopz blog, now known as The Pond, has relocated to a new address at thepond.octopzlive.com, our new online community hub.

Moving the blog over to this new address will give us the ability to add more online community features to the site, starting with a new series of videos that we’ll be releasing over the next few weeks.

Please be sure to update your browser bookmark to reflect the blog address change. If you subscribe to our blog by RSS or email, this address change will be made automagically on our end.

is there an i in team

Over at the feedgrowth.com blog, the folks from Digital Scientists noted how easy it is to use Octopz to manage the creation of video content and noted that

. . . there are an almost unlimited number of collaboration tools available, what’s different here is the ability to markup and review video files (without requiring a PhD).

Online collaboration expert Dr. Cindy Gordon blogged about the changing business realities of online collaboration and young adults and praised Octopz, calling our software

. . . one of the most powerful on demand collaboration software solutions that I have seen in a long time.

Tech executive Alex Saunders got a demo of Octopz at the recent Enterprise 2.0 conference and blogged about our software, noting that

. . . at $99 per month per license (per simultaneous meeting), it’s easy to imagine this product becoming an inexpensive and indispensible must-have for web design shops and creative teams everywhere.

To see Octopz in action inside your web browser, take the quick tour and then sign up for your own free trial account.
