Miradi

Our new environmental project management software, Miradi, just went into its beta testing. Our core beta testers are drawn from the Conservation Measures Partnership, coalition of the leading biodiversity groups (such as The Nature Conservancy, WWF and WCS).
I thought that meant a small beta test, but it turns out that we already have testers registered from 16 different countries on 6 different continents! Since we're designing this software for field people, and these groups have projects all over the world, it's just to be expected.
Miradi is an exciting project: I'm looking forward to making steady upgrades to the software this year. We're using an agile development mechanism, which means that we are responding quickly to user feedback and releasing new versions of the software several times a month. Later this year we should have a publicly available version 1 of the product!
