Development on globalDoodle started in October 2010, launching a 6 week beta testing period in March 2011. The launch team consisted of Helmut Eder & Neil Domselaar.
globalDoodle is a website where people can draw, either individually or collaboratively in real time, on a giant, digital piece of paper measuring 16 km??. Designed by Helmut Eder and Neil Domselaar, the site went live in May 2011. It does not require a registration or log-in and allows people to express what they feel. The designs can be locked or left open for others to contribute to. Each design has a unique code so it can easily be found and shared. Inspiration for globalDoodle came from the thought of "getting everyone on the same page" and allowing artistic [removed]and scribbles as well) to be shared with the world.
One of the characteristics that sets globalDoodle apart is the use of the HTML5 standard to allow drawing natively in the browser without the need for browser plug-ins.
