Online Notebooks:  Now Where Did I See That?

May 7, 2009

This week we’re tying things together.  Taking the example of term paper preparation, I tried to show how search, social bookmarking, and social notbooking tooks are the essential building blocks of information management.  We looked at three tools: Ubernote, a relatively simple and plain vanilla system, Evernote, a very robust commercial product, and Zoho notebook, a full featured product with a weak clipping system.

Not a full presenttation, but I  heard a great podcast yesterday from Cnet’s The Real Deal discussing multiple-location computing.  

Listen to it here







Many of the tools we have discussed at the Tech 20 sessions (including some from the coming week’s session) are mentioned here.
It’s a great way to continue thinking about anytime/anywhere computing.
