Two innovative sites (new finds for me) that you may find useful:
- Techmeme: this site aggregates posts from multiple influential blogs related to the latest in technology; an online resource for understanding hot topics of discussion in the blogosphere
- Doodle: this site can be used to poll or survey your friends on a single question. For example, if you wanted to determine the best time for a group of people to meet (see this example), your friends would visit the link you send them and respond by selecting the times that they are or are not available. A table is produced showing everyone’s responses.
