Development Update: Screenshots of Resources

mcn-screenshot-2 The latest addition to the list of features are thumbnails for those resources that are located on external websites. If a resource is a video, we will display the thumbnail that is provided by the video service. In all other cases, a screenshot will be created (currently experimenting with GrabzIt that seems to do a great job).

mcn-screenshot-1We will display thumbnails above the buttons for outgoing links so that users can get an idea of the website already before they get there. They will also show up on lists in tooltips (the balloons that appear when you hold the mouse pointer over an item).

A Map of Our Social Galaxy

I am impressed by the infographic that Kateřina Kropáčová has created for us. It is an amazingly clean and consistent way of explaining how mycitizen.net works. You probably recognize a certain resemblance to the logos that have also inspired the web design.

Ma Lay in Her Mother Tongue

Thank to the help of our volunteer, Ywet Wai Aung, we have now a Myanmar/Burmese version of our animated film, featuring Ma Lay. Our pilot deployment will be for Myanmar (Burma) and we plan to add further languages that are spoken in this country.

Further Moves

Aside

Our wiki has moved to mycitizen.net. This gives us a clearer structure for future development:

  • mycitizen.net is about the product: introductions, manuals, downloads, development, and any related infos
  • Deployments will be hosted in subdomains of mycitizen.net, like mycommunity.mycitizen.net. There’s nothing yet. We are still chasing bugs.
  • mycitizen.org will be about any organizational background. We are currently sailing under the flag of Burma Center Prague, so this domain is not in use apart from subdomains like blog.mycitizen.org (where you are right now, if we haven’t moved this blog in the meantime).

Blog Moved to Own Address

Aside

We have moved our blog from the wiki at www.mycitizen.org to blog.mycitizen.org for easier writing and a – hopefully – better overall user experience. 🙂
