Trying FeedDemom again-new shared items feed

I don’t know what it is with me and RSS readers. I seem to switch every few months. I’ve been Google Reader for a while and would still recommend it for new users but…

Gaboogie conference calling service might take the annoyance out of conference calls

Raise you hand, how many of hate setting up conference calls?  Great, thanks.  Now, how many of you have been on conferences calls that you’ve set up (and often paid good money for) and have someone just forget to attend (or you’ve done this yourself)?  Really this should be most of you by now, except […]

I peer, you peer, Wipeer-snazzy looking P2P app

Sometimes you just need a little ad-hoc network to get something done at a meeting.  Maybe you’re at a coffee shop with buds and want to push a file back and forth.  Maybe you just need to share something fast.  Vista has this capability built-in, and I got a chance to play with it a […]

You can get there from here with remote connection software

Sometimes you just can’t be there.  Sometimes you aren’t at home and you have one of those "oh no" moments.  You forgot something.  A document, a link, an address.  Or you just want to get home and finish up work stuff.  That’s where remote access software comes in.  EdTechPost relies on Hamachi and Unyte, LifeHacker […]

Web Workers toolkit, is it enough?

Another good post from WebWorkerDaily.  They list the core tools for distance collaboration.

Text chat
Web Conferencing
Document collaboration
Group online document sharing
Shared calendars
Message forums
video chat
