Moo Cards – Bigger & Better!

Several librarians I know have Moo cards. I however stuck to my custom business cards ordered from VistaPrint because I preferred the standard size. Now Moo is offering full sized business cards! Going to have to hide the credit cards so I don’t go crazy buying cards with puppy pictures

More fun with Wordle

I wanted to try Wordle again. I decided to put in my resume from LinkedIn and my Publications & Presentations to see who I was according to Wordle. My Wordle Originally uploaded by nengard I see this as an addicting little toy … what else can you create a Wordle tag cloud with?? Technorati Tags: wordle

Another big name online office suite

Adobe now has an online office suite. This from DownloadSquad: Adobe has built a suite of online office applications to compliment Buzzword, the company’s online word processor. We’ve covered Buzzword in the past. It’s pretty, fast, and not really all that much more useful than similar products from Google or Zoho. Here’s a rundown of the other applications you’ll find at Acrobat.com: ConnectNow: A web conferenceing tool that lets you  [ Read More ]

No more 8apps

Well, I can’t say it’s a surprise, but 8apps has closed down. I was pretty impressed with what I saw when it launched, but every time I checked back, there were still only 4 apps … Today I visited, only to find a note saying that the site had closed because the creator was not in the mood. Oh well, I guess we can only have so many successful productivity  [ Read More ]

Google Sites for All

Back in February I bookmarked Google Sites, but didn’t write about it because it was only available via Google Apps (which I get to use at work). Today I read that Google Sites is now available to all! A few months ago, Google launched Google Sites, a hosted wiki product built on JotSpot technology. But until this week, Google Sites was only available to Google Apps users, which basically meant  [ Read More ]

Fun Domains

I always look at the new web 2.0 type domains (del.icio.us, etc) and think – how the heck did they come up with that? Now, those of us that are a bit less creative can still come up with neat domains for our new sites: DomainFinder is a web application for webmasters which helps you to find fun domain name. For example, if you type Beta tester, DomainFinder will suggest  [ Read More ]

Faxing via the Web

When I started working at home I realized how inconvenient it was to not have a fax machine (we don’t have a land line – but our printer can fax…). I spent ages searching for a fax tool that would let me do everything with PDFs online. Today I find a link to Drop.io fax on Lifehacker. Drop.io itself is a pretty neat service: Drop.io enables you to create simple  [ Read More ]

Google Docs Offline

I was working on some Google Docs today and noticed a little New! icon in the top corner. I clicked it only to find this: Looks like we can now edit our Google Docs offline – I’ll have to play with this before my next Office 2.0 class.

More on Evernote

I have written a bunch about this handy tool – most recently I was happy to announce that a version for Mac was released. Now I’ve been pointed to an article about Evernote on Machinist. Evernote is a forgetter’s dream, but the tool isn’t only for those of us gone mushy in the brain. In the same way that GPS forever changed our relationship to physical spaces, the permanent, constant  [ Read More ]

Photoshop Express

I just found out about Photoshop Express and had to sign right up. You can see my page at http://nengard.photoshop.com. Upload, sort, polish, and store up to 2GB of photos. All for free. Resize, tint, distort, and more — add your mark to all your images. Then show them off on Adobe® Photoshop® Express or your Facebook page. Sounds pretty handy – I’ll have to give it a whirl tomorrow.
