The last thing in the world you need is Yet Another Buddyicon. So we at Renkoo decided to re-use your buddyicons from other services you use — AIM, Flickr, and Yahoo.
Want to change your Renkoo buddyicon?
Go to Preferences and click Change buddyicon. This will pop up a buddyicon selector.

In Part II of our interview with YDN,
The Renkoo founders share details about their backend tools and share some thoughts on Yahoo!’s role as a startup enabler.
They get us to talk about our technology stack, too:
“The main framework is LAMP. The realtime part is a technology my partner Adam Rifkin and I are working on called mod_pubsub, an open source project. And Comet server. The UI is the Dojo AJAX server. Mod_pubsub is written in Twisted Python.”
Listen to the interview here.

Often when you start planning an event with Renkoo, you don’t know when and where. As your group discusses the details, you pick a date and time.
After the inviter picks a date and time, participants can click the “Save to Calendar” button, and then click to save to iCal, Google Calendar, or Outlook. With last week’s Renkoo release, participants can save to Yahoo! Calendar, too.
This brings Renkoo’s Yahoo! Developer Network integrations to four. Besides Yahoo! Calendar, we also employ Yahoo! Local, Yahoo! Maps, and Flickr buddyicons. (Plus, many people use Renkoo with Yahoo! Mail and Yahoo! Messenger, too.)
