Baagz invitation to join

So, as we’ve seen earlier this month, I have been baaged ;;) Today I’ve received the invitation to join and have a look at this tool.

Well, I like it Yahoo emoticon. So far it is in the beta version, so I expect many improvements and tools to be developed until the final release.

Would you research such a site in order to learn for school or work related stuff?
