The Social Networker

I saw the write-up and entry on Mashable about Orgoo.  So I headed over since they had some immediate invites to take advantage of.  The site is listed to do as follows:
an e-mail/IM integration service that, like goo, sticks together all your different mail accounts, contacts, and IM buddies onto one page

What I didn't expect was the following as shown in this screenshot:

While most sites will not store your information, I would imagine this one does.  Well where the hell is the SSL on the site?  They are taking all my usernames and passwords for a nice interface with no SSL at least?  Then how is the data secured and stored?

I will look at the actual interface and talk about that later, when they fix this glaring issue.

    Think of how many people don't pay attention to that because I sure don't. Thanks for pointing it out :D

    Another site to be aware of is Zenbe = they too are not secure.

    Sort of funny and sad... I did not realize it either until this posting, happy I read it before importing accounts... I did the same thing with Zenbe- signed up but have yet to move accounts in to it

    Calm down , They use 128 bit SSL ...notice the URL changing to "" when loging in. They might look into posting their security policy.

    @Cliff - yes the login screen pops that up quickly but when adding accounts and entering my username/password I saw no lock nor flip to the secure site. Did you? That is my concern there

Yes this is a blatant theft of the outline that Jess uses on her page, but I asked permission. Why?? Because I am a hardcore admin and can make ugly tables to make you developers frustrated, but this was too nice to pass up.

One dog, a Pug. He has been on this world before and seems to understand slippers and a fine cigar. Mind you that is him in the chair and not me.

Let us now also add a deranged cat that is in the process of being toilet trained. Update: Toilet traning was very very close.


Non-stop. At my desk, in my car, walking to work and back to my car downtown. In the house there is a crazy zoned set-up for you home automation geeks.

Hershey’s Stomach of Holding: Jess and I are fighting over who eats more chocolate. TWDUFF can help me out and vouch for me.

Character Bio:

This will take far more time than I have today. I will start with I was born and still live in St. Louis, MO. Even though for a couple years I was never, ever here and always on the road, this is smack in the middle of the US. Everything is just a few hour flight. That part is nice. No beach/ocean/coast isn't the best. But with the travel I make up for it.

Don't Panic

Looking to find me in person? Here is where I will be.
