Some Respect In The Press

We were pleased to come across a thoughtful review of ActionMethod Online on CreativeFluff. We also stumbled upon a nice write up by Matt Moore after the writers of BehanceMagazine covered some of Matt’s latest work. It is nice to see some of the early adopters of the Behance Network getting well-deserved recognition, and it is rewarding for us to read their reviews.

Gotta Love Twitter’s “Search” Tool

Over 200 of our closest friends, family, and fans came out to Santos Party House last night to “get in on the action.”  We had great music from Matthew Johnson, DLO The Big Asian, and Mike Servito.  And great drinks provided by Tito’s Vodka and Butternuts Beer & Ale.

If you didn’t get a chance to make it out, take a look at the pictures from Rachel Feierman below.

If it looks like a lot of fun, it’s because it was a lot of fun!

OMG!! AMO!! Launch Party

Word from the Blogosphere

The Behance team is very grateful for the coverage and suggestions we have received from blogs around the world since the launch of AMO. A few blogger reviews we’ve come across (aside from the official ones at TechCrunch and Mashable): 1222North’s review of Action Method – correctly pointing out that this IS more “action management” than “project management” (quite a philosophical difference we are proud of!  And then their is Plus63 – a showcase of Filipino Creativity. We’ll keep a look-out for other interesting interpretations of Action Method Online and how it can help people and teams make ideas happen.

Our team was thrilled to further launch Action Method Online (AMO) today. We’ve been working for years on developing the methodology, the products, and the concepts, design, and technology behind this service. It feels good to finally share AMO with others (beyond the beta user program).

The application received reviews today in TechCrunch, Mashable, LifeDev, and (via TechCrunch) in the Washington Post. Read more →
