The last few months have seen a blitzkrieg of announcements from Atlassian HQ. We released Jira 5 with a new REST API, acquired Hipchat, a collaboration service for group chat, and launched Bamboo 4, our continuous integration and deployment server with more features for DVCS users. But the biggest news we saved for today – a brand new product. Yup, the company that knows a thing or two about issue tracking is raising the stakes with an issue tracker for everything. Introducing IRKD, the first consumer service for tracking everything that’s wrong with everything.
Every great social problems needs a great social service. Facebook helps you stalk ex-lovers, Twitter helps you organize revolutions, and Pinterest helps you organize pictures of cats and wedding dresses. And now, finally, irkd.me lets you bitch about the stuff that drives you nuts. With just a few clicks of the mouse, IRKD lets individuals track, manage, and resolve the bugs in their every day lives. What typically takes weeks, months or even years of bitching and moaning is locked away in your new smartphone in a matter of seconds.
Disgusted by skinny jeans? Tired of people who say “nucular” instead of “nuclear?” Sick of people who SMS at dinner? Then irkd.me is the place for you. Create an IRKD, assign it to the person who irks you, and finally get it sorted out. It’s just that simple. Don’t just take our word for it, give it a try at irkd.me.
We welcome your comments, thoughts, and yes, even irks, about IRKD.
But wait, there’s more! Today, in addition to our new product launch, our friends at Bitbucket rolled out a major new innovation in distributed version control systems – Spooning. Check it out, y’all.
