First look: Foldera shows great promise by ZDNet‘s Marc Orchant —
“I had an opportunity recently to get a first-hand look at Foldera in an online demo with founder and CEO Richard Lusk. For those of you unfamiliar with the as-yet-to-be-released online application, Foldera is an AJAX-rich information manager that combines e-mail, instant messaging, a calendar, task management, and a document repository to produce a browser-accessible collaboration space.”
Good first-look review of Foldera, the hot web-based collaboration tool I’ve been advising since 2003. As the product moves into beta and people start banging on it, I expect there will be a big uptake as people begin to challenge their preconceptions formed by a lifetime of bad personal information managers and clients such as Outlook and Notes.

Thanks for pointing your readers to Marcs article and Foldera.
I really appreciate it.
Sort of a swiss army knife of applications. I’ll have to take a closer look.
I signed up for the beta a few months ago, looking forward to checking this thing out…hoping it ends up being the tool that helps me to become more organized … tried MS OneNote, no go there & Notes doesn’t cut it.
I, too, have been waiting for months to beta test. I always like to test a product before investing in stock for that company. I hope they release soon before they get lumped into the catagory of another company that showed great hype, but never materialized.
I’ll ping the company and see what the hold up is on the beta. There was a miscommunication that led some people to believe that April 15 would be a grand opening of the beta, but knowing the high emphasis on uptime that Foldera is placing on their debut, I imagine a lot of work is being invested in insuring the backend infrastructure — server farm, etc. is done
