Killer Application (+) Comic Soup Vol II

without comments

Since the very beginning of civilization FreindFeed.com gathered lots of positive attention. Although I really really like the application (it converted the phrase ‘can I subscribe to your brain‘ into reality), but it was a bit overstretch when FreindFeed.com was getting touted as Google Reader killer or Facebook Killer.

I posted a question  at LinkedIn asking  "Do you think LinkedIn should add a ‘life-streaming’ service like freindfeed.com? Where users can aggregate the feeds from other places like blogs twetter etc? Why and why not?" followed by a clarification : "I think all of you must be thinking – why this weired thought came to my mind? As you might be aware of freindfeed.com is being touted as facebook killer / google reader killer etc. Just wanted to get a vibe from the users of LinkedIn – what they think about lifestream + social network equation!".

Go there and checkout the violent responses I got!

GSpot (Google+Jotspot): Google Sites finally live

without comments

Google Sites is finally live, 16 months after Google’s acquisition of JotSpot wiki. It looks totally different than JotSpot and has a tremendous possibility to make wiki a mainstream tool.

Some of the Features :

  • Single-click page creation Creating a new page for your Google Site just takes the click of a button.
  • No HTML required Creating a Google Site is as easy as editing a document, which means there’s no markup language for you to learn — just get started.
  • Make it your own Our customization options let you give your Google Site your own look and feel
  • Get started with templates We offer a growing list of page types — web page, announcements, file cabinet, dashboard and list — to help you get started with your Google Sites pages.
  • Upload files and attachments Use the file cabinet to upload files up to 10MB in size. Each Google Apps account receives at least 10GB of storage in Google Sites. Google Apps Premier and Education editions get an additional 500MB for each user account.
  • Embed rich content Google Sites is integrated with other Google products, so you can insert videos, docs, spreadsheets, presentations, photo slide shows, and calendars directly onto your Google Sites pages.
  • Work together and share Our permission settings let you designate owners, viewers and collaborators (meaning they can edit pages) for your site. And you can make your Google Sites available to just a few people, your entire organization, or the world.
  • Search with Google You can search across Google Sites pages and content using powerful Google search technology. You’ll find specific pages and documents instantly, the same way you would on Google.com.

Here goes the official introduction and a short video on Google Site:

Google Sites is the easiest way to make information accessible to people who need quick, up-to-date access. People can work together on a Site to add file attachments, information from other Google applications (like Google Docs, Google Calendar, YouTube and Picasa), and new free-form content. Creating a site together is as easy as editing a document, and you always control who has access, whether it’s just yourself, your team, or your whole organization. You can even publish Sites to the world. The Google Sites web application is accessible from any internet connected computer.
