People and Org Listing pages should be faster..

leave a comment »

I’ve gone down the slippery path of caching the listing pages for people and organizations, so they should render much faster (well, except for the first person to hit them 😉 ).

I’ve also tuned a bit when we include the simile timeline javascript, as that always seemed to load slowly. It now only comes up on pages that need it like the browse recent events.

If you see out of date information, or any other oddness. Please drop me a line!

Now you can download contact information!

I’m rolling out the ability to download people and organizations contact information into your address book, wether that is AddressBook.app on the Mac, or Outlook on the PC. Through the magic of a really neat Technorati service the hCard information that is microformatted for a person or an organization is converted to the standard vCard format used by most address book applications.

Also, I’ve taken advantage of the Yahoo Geocoder service so that when we look up a lat and lng for mapping an organization based on a free form address, we also now parse out the street, zip, state, and country and store them! Hopefully this will lead to cleaner information!
