Aviary. Can you imagine?
Article for online trends magazine TheTrendNet
In the following, an imaginary but possible conversation between two members of the worth1000.com team is quoted, just as they start thinking about creating Aviary:
– Can you imagine? It’d be like having a free set of design tools to edit images online, without needing to download the application.
– Sure, the files should be accessible from any computer and it should let you save them safely, allowing you to make a backup DVD with your documents.
– And it’d be great to be able to manage documents collectively, opening files of other people in the community, for example, and finishing them, in a similar way to Google Apps. There would have to be lots of different tools, like a word processor, image editor, vector graphics editor, an editor for the desktop, audio, 3D modelling, etc.
– I’d call it Aviary. What do you think?
– Yes, like an aviary, i.e. a collection of birds which, in our case, would represent the different tools: Phoenix, raven, toucan, peacock, etc.
– It’d work, for sure. What’s more, ‘aviar’ also means “to prepare something for the road”, that is what Aviary would do for designers, right?
