One of our goals at Paragent is to try and create a community around our products. In part, this means creating products that have the features that are compelling, and benefit from community involvement. Konfabulator is a great example of software that enables the development of a community. It is a part of our development strategy to add these kinds of features to viewport, and I'll have more to say about that in the future.

There is another way to create a community around a company or product, and that is through transparency--make people feel like they are "inside" the process, so that they take ownership of the product. At Paragent, we do this in many ways, including focus groups, early adopter programs, etc.

This blog is another. While I first started (and stopped) writing this blog a long time ago, for entirely different reasons, I hope to start using it as a means of connecting the inside of Paragent to our existing and potential customers. Hopefully this will allow people to see what kind of a company we are, and what crazy ideas we have for the future. Stay tuned...
