PRAI, FOCI, BELD, ST, BLOG? read on.
As CMS go, FOCI is pretty good. There are lots of functions: election graphs, opinion polls, online petitions. Although as I’ve not seen the user interface I can’t comment on it’s easy of use as a tool. I guess the testimonials speak for that. Tim tells me that a survey function is being developed for FOCI and will be made available to all FOCI users as part of a continous program of enhancements, bug fixes and updates to the product.
And all for £50 to setup and £15 per month. First year costs? £230
But over at TypePad, something very similar to FOCI is offered. For around £8 a month (depending on the strength of the Pound over the Dollar) you can get a hosted Moveable Type webblog. And with a couple of months free thrown in if you pay for 12 months in advance, using Typepad would be £150 cheaper than FOCI!
Incidently, PRAI are the same company who are hosting Jody Dunn’s weblog - powered by Moveable Type 3.01D.
