• Starting with the 1.5 release, Elgg started to
get a lot more attention in the marketplace,
especially in the U.S.
• The Elgg core team thought it was time to
get the “Elgg economy” off the ground here.

• Fastest to create an account with your
Twitter credentials, but username/password/
email also pretty fast.
Update from yesterday
• Elgg was a major sponsor of yesterday’s
event, “Social Technology in Education”
• Elgg is of huge interest to many high schools
and universities, and the conference proved
that many of these institutions are asking,
“How can we get an Elgg network?”
• This is a major opportunity for providers!
