Google docs add templates

November 14, 2009

Didn’t know that there were more templates beyond what is listed in google docs (and didn’t notice that ‘search templates’ link in google docs?) Well, now you do. You can also get ’em here.… and here is how to create your own (well, sort of).

e-Publishing? Isuuu?

December 28, 2008

Has anyone used Issuu to epublish? If so, what do you think?
I’ve been considering switching platforms for the arts magazine. I like PacerCMS, but I don’t have much time for development these days. I chose PacerCMS because it created a nice issue and did everything I wanted out of the box (and it pretty much does, once I created my CSS templates). So, I don’t HAVE to switch to anything… but whoa, does Issuu look good. However, the free version is ad based. ;-(

Is there anything opensource like Issuu? I’d rather run something on my own server, but I understand these can be embedded into a website.


The politics of collaboration

October 8, 2008

Very interesting article on the political nature of collaboration tech/IT projects, such as web2.0 technologies:

The three most common objections raised to any new collaboration technology (including Web 2.0 ) are security (access control, compliance and governance); cost (initial price and TCO); and productivity (which processes the technology supports and what is the expected cut in cycle times if everything goes well). In working with clients on these objections we find that they often become political. Selection of the collaboration technology is political, who uses it and how can become political. Any resources dedicated to a collaboration project often become political. Changes in compensation to support collaborative behaviors become political. In essence, anything to do with collaboration can become political very quickly!


Sticky notes go high tech

May 24, 2008


So, you thought those yellow paper sticky notes were useful as they are, hmm? What if you could transfer your sticky notes to your computer? I don’t mean stick them to the frame of your monitor, either ;-D

And it would be better than my PDA if it would somehow manage all of the sticky notes that people leave me. Now, if I could get those transferred to my calendar/todo list, I’d love that. ;-D

It does look as if the “pen” writes ink as well as electronically, which is a plus because I’d need both. ;-D

So, how do I find these, so I can try them?
