Google Docs in Plain English

without comments

Latest installment of Lee Leefever’s plain English series, Google Docs in Plain English. Although it’s a ‘client’ production (for the Google Docs team), but it’s worth watching and definitely worth sharing with the people who yet to get the concept of online office.

BTW : Google launched a basic PowerPoint clone that lets you create Presentations inside the web browser. Other than creating presentations from scratch, you can also upload your existing PPT slide-set into Google PowerPoint.

with one comment

If you are like me, using del.icio.us for a long time, bookmarked more than 10000 articles and things over there and whole place is just looking messy, despite of strict rituals of tagging properly – you might just need this : deliGoo

Install this Firefox extension, and you can search not only your bookmarks and their descriptions, but the text of the pages that they point to as well.

deliGoo will analyze your del.icio.us account and create a Google Custom Search Engine, then use it to search the contents of every site for a match.

My top 10 tools

with 5 comments

Jane Hart asked me at our Internet Time Community : “What are your top 10 tools?”. Here goes the list (in no particular order). You can see other’s top 10 here.
1. Firefox

Do we remember how was the life before FireFox? FF is not only the browser that simply works, the Plugins and Add-ons developed by the community help me to make it my own. Love it!
2. Google Family

It’s not a single tool, I use and love and can’t live without Gmail, GTalk, Google Reader, Google Docs and Spreadsheets, Google Calendar, Google Notebook..

3. WordPress

The sweetest :) blog engine, again Open Source and community development (plugin, theme) rules! All of my blogs are using Wordpress. [Thanks James for introducing me to WordPress, 3 years back]

4. Del.icio.us

Simple, easy to use, effective. Period!

5. Flickr

Most intuitive online album application till date.

6. Basecamp

The online project management application by 37 Signals. Without that me and my team will be forced to live a hellish chaotic life! It’s simple and provides a great user experience.

7. PB Wiki

We are running our intranet or ‘Knowledge Pod’ on this. Cool, flexible and easy too use. Even a drunken monkey can use it.

[Last 3 are Desktop Tools, unfortunately!]

8. Mindmanager Pro 7

Most feature rich, link-all-tools mind managing s/w, I use it as my dashboard.

9. PowerPoint 2007

Because still there is no viable alternatives.
10. Outlook 2007

I know it’s so uncool! I swear, I tried ThunderBird. But…

My blog is my dashboard

without comments

Although Jakob Nielsen says Write Articles, Not Blog Postings; I must confess, SoulSoup is still a (constantly updated) directory of stuffs I am interested in (80% of the time). Sometime I do write things which can be considered as ‘Article’ too, but frequency of that is almost negligible.

My blog is my PKM dashboard! I have to say that I check Technorati ranking and comments makes me happy. But those are just garnish.

Apart from blogposts, my del.icio.us links get posted daily here, my Blogroll is here and so does my Flickr Album. My micro-blogging at Twitter is connected with my blog in both ways (Widget from Twitter to the blog and

Oh yes did I mention that I am 90% addicted to blogging? (fun-survey found via Luis)
