An extra eye to confirm that problem you already see
If your business uses the Internet in some way then you’re probably used to asking or being asked by co-workers “hey, can you look at this thing? it seems off…”
Checking for a design problem or a bug in a website or software is a common occurrence, one that generates a countless number of emails and desk drop bys. Sometimes these are welcome, but they can also be distracting and frustrating to people on both sides. If you’re checking for a problem all you need is someone else to confirm “yep. that doesn’t seem right, here’s a screen grab”, but if you’re the constant recipient of requests it can mess up your workflow.
localweb.is/u/bug-check is an example of how the local web can easily & quickly be used to get answers. If you’re checking for a bug simply message someone the URL and ask them to post a note if they see any problems. Anyone can view it so you can use it as a messaging group within your company, or ask your friend Tara over at the coffee shop on 4th Avenue to confirm that you’re not crazy and a piece of code is displaying incorrectly.
We are building the local web and sharing a new way to use it each day.
