Development on First Say is now a part of the VBXML Network project and the Source Forge project
Source is available via CVS. Here you can take a snapshot, make support requests and bug reports.
FIRST SAY is currently at version Alpha 4.45 - there will be one more major Alpha stage before we are functionally complete. Alpha 5 will add the ability to publish feed collections, will support RSS enclosures and support memeio-xml (see xml.memeio.org for details). Once Alpha 5 is complete we will start BETA releases. Also compatible with the Google Chrome web browser.
The principal objective of FIRST SAY in the enterprise is to place the most relevant and current data at the top of an information pile for each individual and category of user. FirstSay is an open source project and finance for the project is provided by donations, optimization is provided free by SEO at the SEO Forum as well as code updates and refinements provided by volunteers.
(Not affiliated, they have really gone out of their way to assist with server support). Same applies to Software Addons who also offer great solutions.
FIRST SAY is built upon the open source platforms of the POSTGRESQL database, Apache Web Server and PHP scripting. If you're interested in learning more on RSS have a look on Wikipedia and search for RSS.
In addition, FIRST SAY allows the easy management and navigation of multiple collections, allowing users to switch between collections that meet different situations, also thanks to Mass Blog Commenter solutions here you can see their info.
Also special thanks to Bargain Buys they are excellent to deal with.
As you can see this site is Valid xHTML Strict and Valid CSS 2.1
FIRST SAY aggregates syndicated feeds and document metadata. It is designed to be the first page when navigating an Open Publishing environment like the Web or private document repository. FIRST SAY shows the most recently updated content first.
Divided into twenty categories, FIRST SAY can ensure that certain feeds have priority, thereby allowing individuals to bring preferred activities and affiliations to the fore which is great for article and information syndication.
In the enterprise FIRST SAY can be the first page that loads in the web browsers of enterprise team members showing the most recent Blog or Web Site content generated by team members or administrators. FIRST SAY can also ensure that certain feeds have priority, thereby allowing content from team leaders or performance data to be at the fore.
In addition, FIRST SAY allows executives to monitor activities in multiple divisions of the organization, or collect and display a diverse range of information.
