AMO on Speed

It’s been quite a while since I’ve written here – probably too long. The past couple of weeks we’ve spent a lot of time improving the performance of Action Method Online. We are proud to say the changes are up and running smoothly. We’ve done things from the simply obvious (loading screen between tabs) to the outrageously maticulous (optimizing CSS). Due to these changes everything runs faster including loading time, drag-and-dropping, resizing, switching tabs, and searching. You may have also noticed we got rid of that “2.5 Seconds Remain” countdown after the site finished loading. That always was irritating to us and the optimizations let us finally remove it.

What’s New In ActionMethod Online

You said it, and we heard it. Based on the great feedback shared by early adopters of Action Method Online (AMO), we have added a number of enhancements to the application.  The additions include the ability for you (or anyone else) to email an action step to your AMO InBox (via your own @action.me email address) as well as increased messaging features, multiple delegation, importing contacts, and more…  See all of the latest enhancements on our What’s New page.

UCLA-Berkeley Creativity & Technology

Behance was featured at the annual UCLA-Berkeley “Play” Conference at the Haas School of Business.  I (Scott) had the opportunity to make the case for empowering creative professionals with the new age of technology, and I had the opportunity to discuss (and in some cases debate) the importance of boosting productivity in the creative world – and protecting the time and effort that goes into great pieces of creative work.

AMO – Launched At Last

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 →

Small Downtime

You may have noticed our sites were down for around 30 minutes from 6:15 to 6:45PM EST time. There was a slight misconfiguration while we changed settings to make our sites more stable and secure. So ironically, the changes to make the sites stay up, made the sites go down. We have taken the necessary steps to ensure this does not happen again. We can also assure you that nothing was lost and that the sites are now, in fact, more stable and secure than ever before.
