    Last Saturday we had drinks with founder and CEO of Netvibes Tariq Krim. During a great party in Amsterdam’s hippest club Jimmy Woo, he promised us – kind as he is – 100 private invites for the beta version of ginger. 5,000 users already tested the social adventure of the personalized startpage service, now it’s time for the next group. We gladly accepted Tariq’s offer because, dear reader, even during a party we’re thinking of you.

    Most important new functions of ginger are the ‘My Universe‘ option and the possibility to follow your friends.
