Hitchhikr – The uber conference aggregator

2 Cents Worth » Announcing hitchhikr.com Leave it to Dave.  One of my favorite things about his presentations are the way he handles his resources and 'handouts'.  He has a wiki for each presentation with hyperlinks for the information he has talked about.  That's cool.  Oh yeah, since it's a wiki, anybody can add their [...]

Seeing if Flock has wings

I can only read about so many people trying out a new browser before I have to give it a whirl myself.  So, today I've spent the day using Flock as my browser instead of Firefox.  First impressions?  I like it.  It grabbed all of my Firefox settings, bookmarks, cookies, and such so I really [...]

del.icio.us – A little privacy please

One of the things I always liked about Furl better than del.icio.us was that you could actually choose to make some bookmarks private. Just in case you didn't want the world to know you were a huge fan of rodeo clowns, you could mark those bookmarks as private. Turns out there's a way to do [...]

Gabbly – Did you know your site already has a chat window?

This is strange, but very very cool. While browsing through ITRedux's Office 2.0 database, I came across Gabbly. At first I thought it was just another web based IM client like Meebo, but I was way off base. Gabbly is actually a site specific chat room that requires no code or installation to work on [...]

I *heart* my OSXP

I noticed that the computer was a little pokey when switching between users and switching between operating systems with 512mb of RAM. It could be done, but it wasn't all that snappy. Considering it was a new computer, I didn't want to be feeling frustrated with it. So I spent $165 at NewEgg.com and picked [...]
