Jane Hart +Social Networking For Managing Productivity

Jane Hart, who is a Social Media, Social Networking and Learning advisor and she offers a page that contains over 2,400 tools for learning in two main sections:

1. for creating, delivering and managing learning and performance support solutions
2. for managing your own learning and productivity, for sharing resources, as well as group collaboration (also includes some enterprise tools)

The tools in this Directory are both freeware/open source and commercial.

Some examples of some of the great tools:

ActiveCollab “a project management and collaboration tool that you can set up on your own website. Have an area where you can collaborate with your team, clients and contractors and keep projects on track while retaining full control over access permissions and your data.”

BrainReactionsOnline brainstorming rooms: A place to brainstorm  and manage ideas

Stixy-Think of Stixy as your online bulletin board. Create as many Stixyboards as you like, one for each project. Use Stixy to easily organize and share:

* Your family’s schedule
* Projects at work
* An upcoming holiday with your friends
* Your photos from your last bike trip
* Or share a file or two with a friend

Only you set the limitations for how you want to use Stixy.

Fast, Comfortable Flights Vs. Feeling Ripped-Off

InsideTrip is an airline ticket search engine with a focus on identifying flights with the highest level of quality, as opposed to the approach most search engines take (finding the lowest price). I know for those who travel alot this has been sent from heaven;0)

Quality is measured by factors spanning 3 categories (speed, comfort, and ease) and addressing 12 so-called “pain points” (such as number of stops, security wait time, legroom, aircraft type, connection time, and gate location). As a user of InsideTrip, you can indicate which of these pain points are most important to you and the service’s algorithms will generate a unique TripQuality score for each ticket result. These can be used in conjunction with the ticket price to find just the right itinerary.

InsideTrip has collected information about the quality of trips from a variety of sources, including the Transportation Security Administration, airlines, and airline websites.
