Wouldn't want to be a 2012 grad for all the tea in China given the lackluster state of economy and hiring. Great, helpful post by maxOz may help dull the pain some. If I had it to do over again I would start my first company at 22 not 35 because 1. WHY NOT and 2. see #1. Great Scoop Michele. Marty
maxOz's comment, May 8, 2012 9:04 AM
Marty, how are you doing .Agree wholeheartedly. Although there is an advantage to being 35, older, experienced, pinch of wisdom and being able to work smarter, not harder xxx

Save, Share and Collaborate Around Any Kind of File with the New Google Drive

Robin Good: Google Drive is finally out and readfdy to be used.

 

The service moves Google Docs to a whole new level by providing full integration between cloud storage and the apps and files you have in your computer.

 

"Google Drive lets you do more than just store your files. Share files with exactly who you want and edit them together, from any device.

 

In Google Drive, you can create new documents, spreadsheets and presentations instantly. Work together at the same time, on the same doc, and see changes as they appear."

 

Key features include:

 

Google Drive gives you instant access to Google Docs, a suite of editing tools that makes working together better—even when your teammates are miles away.

Say goodbye to bulky email attachments. Send a link from Google Drive in Gmail and everyone has the same file, same version—automatically.

Your videos and pictures in Google Drive are instantly available in Google+, so you’re never more than one click away from sharing with your circles.

Google Drive helps you get to your files faster. Search for content by keyword and filter by file type, owner and more. Google Drive can even recognize objects in your images and text in scanned documents.

Open over 30 file types right in your browser—including HD video, Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop—even if you don’t have the program installed on your computer.

You can share files or folders with anyone, and choose whether they can view, edit or comment on your stuff.

Create and reply to comments to get feedback and make files more collaborative.

Go back in time. Google Drive tracks every change you make—so when you hit the save button, a new revision is saved. You can look back as far as 30 days automatically, or choose a revision to save forever.

 

Free to use.

 

Get started with 5 GB of free space. Upgrade to 25 GB for less than $2.50 a month.

 

Google Drive is available for:

PC and MaciPhone and iPad (coming soon) Android devices

Compare and Evaluate Web Conferencing and Webinar Tools: The Online Meeting Tools Review

Compare and Evaluate Web Conferencing and Webinar Tools: The Online Meeting Tools Review | Education Tech & Tools | Scoop.it

Robin Good: The Online Meeting Tools Review is a web-based service which allows you to compare side-by-side over 35 web conferencing and webinar tools. 

 

The free version allows you to access individual reviews and to compare up to four tools on a set of basic criteria with not much detail.

 

The Pro version is a downloadable PDF that includes comparison of whatever number of tools you have selected across 80 different features.

 

Price starts at $19 for in-depth comparison of 4 tools. Each additional tool added to the report is $4 more. 


P.S.: I have looked at some of the reviews and I have found them not to be as detailed and insightful as I would have expected. The data is there, but in some cases key advantages of a certain tool or technology over another are not highlighted at all. 

 

Well organized idea for an in-demand need, but information quality is not as good as it should be. 6/10

 

Evaluation method: http://webconferencing-test.com/en/evaluation-guide ;

Nice shot of current status. I just would like to mention Anymeeting which you probably curated some months ago.
Free and paid services. Complete of several useful functionalities. E.g. recording, sharing, after-meeting surveys, private or public access.
