So many tools, so little time!

October 7, 2009

Yesterday while glancing through my Tweets, I stumbled across a request by @wmacphail to go to an address. Since I've always found his work interesting, I clicked. I ended up on an app he'd embedded in a course wiki, which let me talk to him and another guest. We were on tokbox – http://www.tokbox.com/ – a videochat tool.

I wish I had time to experiment with it. I hope people let me know how it works for them.

When I DMed @wmacphail my thanks for introducing me to tokbox, he sent me another link, showing me how LiveScribe works – http://www.livescribe.com/ – and I fell into equipment lust. I want one, but I'll have to save up first.


I wish I had time to experiment with it. I hope people let me know how it works for them.

Then my colleagues in the HPCA Google Group sent around an amusing video with robot-like characters made with Xtranormal – http://www.xtranormal.com/ – and this tool looked like fun.


I wish I had time to experiment with it. I hope people let me know how it works for them.

While scanning through my Posterous subscription to Steve Rubel's LifeStream this morning, – http://www.steverubel.com/google-preps-server-side-clipboard – I saw the link to the post about the Google Cloudboard – http://googlesystem.blogspot.com/2009/10/google-cloudboard.html – and it looks very useful.


I hope I'll have time to experiment with it. I hope, when it becomes available, people will let me know how it works for them.

In my Inbox this morning, I found an invitation to Google Wave, and I'm so-o-o- curious, and so short of time!


I'm determined to have time to experiment with it. I hope people let me know how it works for them.

    My thoughts exactly – so many tools, so little time.

    We have used xtranormal to make a video to put on our blog though. The kids loved it but not many could use it as it’s restricted to 13 years+.
