Visualize Tasks with DropTask

Lifehacker pointed me to this cool looking tool that I thought might interest some of you. It’s called DropTask and it lets you visualize your tasks in a sort of Ven Diagram way. I created a couple tasks in a project called ‘Blogs’: This from Lifehacker: DropTask is incredibly intuitive, and while it can seem a little weird at first—not to mention space-inefficient—it can be pretty handy if you’re managing  [ Read More ]

Collaboration is Key

When I was in college I would often work on my assignments with my husband (not my husband then of course) and most of our professors were fine with that because they realized that in the real world jobs are done in collaboration … well at least jobs in most successful companies. Opensource.com repeats my opinion: Most businesses today know that utilizing collaboration tools increases the liklihood success for a  [ Read More ]

On Pinterest

Tonight I attended a talk on Pinterest given by John LeMasney. Pinterest does one thing and does that one thing very well – it’s an image sharing/bookmarking tool. Social Visual Bookmarking Precedents John started by showing us sites that came before Pinterest that had/have a similar purpose : Delicious The idea of social bookmarking became popular with Delicious, but has lost a lot of users because of Yahoo!’s poor management  [ Read More ]

Links in Google Calendar Events

When I was teaching my WordPress class recently a librarian asked me if they could link to the registration page from their Google Calendar (the one I told them to embed in their WordPress site) – and I said I didn’t think so. Now, I don’t remember who that librarian was so I’m going to share this with you all and hope that she’s reading In a recent post by  [ Read More ]

Communication w/out email

A few years ago I was all over the place talking about how you can use your Intranet to improve communications within your library. I always said emails were a disaster when it came to project management – now Shareflow has popped onto the scene saying the same thing and offering a solution: The more you use email, the more work you create for your team. Important information gets lost  [ Read More ]

Another way to use Zoho

This from ReadWriteWeb: Zoho, the web office company that competes with Google’s online tools (and does so quite well), has introduced a new feature to their online suite of productivity applications: Zoho Chat 2.0. Built atop the original Zoho Chat platform, this iteration now integrates all the major instant messaging networks. But a multi-protocol IM client is not the big news – it’s the fact that Zoho Chat 2.0 is  [ Read More ]

Yelp Makes it to the Big Time

But when can you truly say that a company has “made it?” It’s when people start hating you, of course. Sites like Yelp-Sucks and IHateYelp have been popping up, with the general theme being an angry business owner who was Yelped. Those business owners that think they must use Yelp for competitive reasons are getting frustrated over some of Yelp’s policies, and are starting to complain about it. Loudly. The  [ Read More ]

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 ]

Google Apps – free from IT

I’ve been sitting on this article all day. I’m not sure where I stand on the issue – but I still feel that it’s something I should bring to your attention: Google (NASDAQ: GOOG) today announced Google Apps Team Edition as the simplest and fastest way for groups of employees and students to collaborate within an organization using Google Apps™. Once users verify their business or school email address, they  [ Read More ]

Drupal Mailing List

Okay – I’ve been fighting with Drupal for months! Now there is finally some help in sight! As the name implies, ‘DRUPAL4LIB‘ is for those interested in Drupal, a popular open-source CMS, as it relates to libraries and librarians. The idea is to have a forum to exchange ideas and advice, share experiences, and maybe even collaborate on a couple of projects that highlight the use of Drupal in a  [ Read More ]
