Interesting Sites of the day

As I read articles, and surf the net, I jut down sites that call my attention so when I have the time, I can go back  and check further..   Up until now, I have been just keeping them on my to-do list, and then mark them off when I get to them.  I figure, why not just list them in my blog now…   So in no particular order, and with no rime or reason, here are the last few  ones I’ve checked and investigated a bit..  (recommended to check are listed as: star1_25x25)

  • www.jingproject.com star1_25x25
    Free tool that lets you grab a a portion of the screen, or a video, and then you can share. GREAT for demos.
  • Online teamwork / collaboration:
    • www.etherpad.org star1_25x25–   wrote about this one on this post – Great application for taking online / collaborative notes
    • www.skrbl.com  star1_25x25–   Simple and easy online multi user whiteboard, start skrbl, give out your URL & start working together. Sketch, text, share files, upload pictures all in one common shared space.
    • www.twiddla.com –  an whiteboard  for collaborative meetings or web-site annotations. No client software needed –
  • Online alternatives for PowerPoint? Fully feature?
    • www.280slides.com (1)– it is interesting, but sticking with PowerPoint.
    • www.sliderocket.com star1_25x25– excellent interface and features.
  • www.projjex.com – A set of integrated web-based apps and tools for managing Professional Services firms –

  • http://www.syncmycal.blogspot.com/ – Multiple Calendar Synchronization (outlook, + Google and others)
  • www.30boxes.com – an online calendaring tool.  (Have not checked it fully yet, but sounds promising.)
  • http://www.elasticserver.com/   – let’s you put together servers in a cloud computing environment.
    It is very much like  www.3terra.com  or Amazon EC2 but less expensive (I think) .   Focused only in Linux.
  • www.visitmix.com – MIX is an online community of  web designers and developers who build and believe in the innovative web.  Fantastic keynote sessions from MIX’08 and MIX’09 videos star1_25x25.  Worth the time to listen to it, even if you are not a designer or developer.

  1. What about MemCatch (www.memcatch.com)? Allows for the aggregation/webclipping like these other apps, but focuses on the sharing of this knowledge across social networks. The iPhone app, desktop client (for all platforms), and LinkedIn, & Facebook are coming out in the next couple months, integration with Twitter already exists. It will soon include: email integration (syncs with emails and lets you flag the ones you want to keep directly to your knowledge base), learning management system integration (for students), and RSS feed integration.
