Dopplr - traveller's website

Dopplr came to me by way of Max Everingham - thanks Max. It's a site that lets you input your future travel details - when you're going where, basically. You can then share that information with friends, in particular other friends who travel frequently, so you can see if there's any overlap in case you're in the same place at the same time. Great for people who travel a lot and whose friends and family do too - any easy way to check if anyone you know is in the same city as you at the same time.

An anthropological introduction to YouTube

Finally got round to watchin this video which came to me courtesy of Michael Coghlan via the Webheads. Fantastic video that discusses YouTube and how it reflects humans' sense and use of community. 55 minutes long but well worth the time - MAKE time to watch this.

Of Gin, Cognitive Surplus and Not Forgetting the Mouse

Excellent video of Clay Shirky, author of Here Comes Everybody, talking at the Web 2.0 Expo 2008. He talks about how people find the time to contribute to Wikipedia (turn off the TV!), what's happening with all the cognitive surplus that's around, and how no monitor should ever be shipped without a mouse again.

Diigo - highlight and comment on webpages and more

I've been looking for something like this for a few years and Dennis Newson has just sent this my way - thanks Dennis. Diigo is a tool that allows you to highlight sentences on webpages, post sticky notes on them, comment on them in other ways - and all either for yourself or publicly. Very useful if you're reading an article on a site and want to make comments on it for yourself for later reference, or for others if you want to read something as a team. Very handy. A promo video is also available here.

British Council website for professionals

No idea how I missed this one - with any luck it's brand-new which would explain why I've never come across it. This is an excellent website aimed at professionals learning English, i.e. business English learners. It's got articles, podcasts with transcripts, vocabulary and grammar help and more. Very nice.
