Google Guide is an online interactive tutorial and reference for experienced users, novices, and everyone in between. I developed Google Guide because I wanted more information about Google's capabilities, features, and services than I found on Google's website. --Nancy Blachman
"The recently announced end-of-life for Google Reader has brought about many articles in the press listing replacements. Unfortunately, many of the replacements suffer from several deficiencies:
Most of them are hosted solutions. This means that they have the same weakness that Google Reader had: your reading is under the control of another entity. This means if the company goes out of business, or decides to change direction, you could find yourself in the same boat as you did with Google Reader.
Most of them are not being made available under a real open source license, such as the GPL or MIT licenses. "
"This document presents options for open source software for use in the education sector. Some of these may have uses outside of education, but they are presented here in the context of their specific benefits to educational establishments, or their use in the course of teaching and learning.
The document is intended to complement the UK Cabinet Office’s Open Source Options document, which is presented as part of its Open Source Procurement Toolkit in recognition that open source software is underused across the public sector. As such, the aims and context of this document are the same as those stated in the original document."
"Google can do more than display lists of websites – Google will give you quick answers to many special searches. While Google isn’t quite as advanced as Wolfram Alpha, it has quite a few tricks up its sleeve.
We’ve also covered searching Google like a pro by learning the Google search operators – if you want to master Google, be sure to learn those."

The only place you should use QR codes is if you have a dedicated reader for them, like a classic barcode scanner, and a workflow that is designed for this that actually saves time. If you do empirical research on using QR codes for the public, you'll likely see 80% worse performance than text like this museum did. By all means try the experiment and report your results. Put up a QR code and a printed URL and see which gets the most usage.

Social tools — social media and social networks — have swept through media and society like a tsunami, upsetting everything they touch. I expect that the impact of these tools on the world of business will be as large and as long-lasting as email was a generation ago.Work Media: social tools designed for the enterprise but based on the patterns of interaction, influence, and communication from social networks of the open web. Work media tools share a number of characteristics, most centrally the streaming metaphor of Twitter and Facebook, with short updates from a variety of sources cascade into each user's dashboard, from which each can derive a networked gestalt of the world. Work media is altering the DNA of business.This website is meant to be a compendium of short reviews of Work Media tools, as well as pointers to the best thinking about the impacts they have on business, and by extension, society. It is in perpetual beta.
