GMail Drive shell extension - Use Gmail as an external hard drive

GMail Drive creates a virtual filesystem on top of your Google Gmail account and enables you to save and retrieve files stored on your Gmail account directly from inside Windows Explorer.

GMail Drive literally adds a new drive to your computer under the My Computer folder, where you can create new folders, copy and drag'n'drop files to.

With GMail Drive you can easily copy files to your Gmail account and retrieve them again. Basically GMail Drive acts as any other hard-drive installed on your computer.
You can copy files to and from the GMail Drive folder simply by using drag'n'drop like you're used to with the normal Explorer folders.

The Advocacy Project

The Advocacy Project, a non-profit organization, was formed in 1998 to serve the needs of civil society - particularly community based advocates for peace and human rights. We give special attention to helping NGOs and networks become self sufficient in the use of information and communications technologies.

THE CONCEPT

Advocates are remarkable people - strong, brave and incredibly effective. Despite this, their contribution is often misunderstood and even devalued by the international community. Advocacy is seen as an "add-on." We consider it to be central and essential to a strong civil society. It also has distinct strengths and needs.

Information is the lifeblood of advocacy, and we try to help our partners use information, and information technology more effectively. We do this with great care, because outsiders can do tremendous damage when they impose "capacity building." This can be the quickest and easiest way to stifle the qualities that are essential for advocacy - commitment, energy, and conviction. As a result, we do not offer our services. Partners reach us by visiting our website, reading our newsletter, or hearing about us from others.

Meebo - Web-based aggregator for IM clients. Use AIM, Yahoo! Messenger, Jabber and MSN Messenger all in one place

What is meebo?

Meebo is a web based IM that lets you log into your IM networks from any computer with a browser and internet connection with no firewall issues. It employs technologies (like AJAX) to make it act more like a desktop application, which dramatically improves usability. Many users enjoy the benefits of a native DHTML application, as it does not consume as many system resources as a Java applet (such as ICQ2Go or Yahoo Web Messenger).

Some users are also experimenting with setting meebo as their Active Desktop page to use meebo like a native Windows application for their instant-messaging purposes.

Especially good for those who want to use an IM client in school, college or at work, where regular messengers are blocked

Meebo - Taking Instant Messaging with You wherever You May Go

by Luis Suarez @ 8:45 pm. Filed under Collaboration, Productivity Tools

Although some time ago I mentioned how I was finding out how more and more I was starting to give up on Instant Messaging and begun to move towards other more powerful real-time collaboration tools that would include both Instant Messaging and VoIP capabilities, amongst other features, there are times where I would still need to make use of IM vs. VoIP related tools like Skype, specially when I am in a hurry. Instances like while on the road travelling or while working in a different workplace than my usual workplace are clear examples why I would still need to have access to my online contacts and eventually I may still need to get in touch with my colleagues and friends through some more traditional methods, like good old Instant Messaging.

That is why web offerings like Meebo come to my rescue and help me save a couple of headaches here and there. Although it hasn’t even reached the Beta status, it seems to be a very stable service that would allow you to connect via the Web to four of the most popular Instant Messaging clients available out there: AIM or ICQ, Yahoo! Messenger, Jabber or GTalk and MSN. Yes, indeed, all of the most popular IM protocols are out there with Meebo.

The great thing about this new web offering is that I no longer need to have any of those IM clients installed in my machine or while on the road to still be in touch, real-time, with those who would need to reach me for whatever the reason. This is just a terrific idea as it will help people consolidate their efforts and clients into a single approach, that is, a single web site where you can connect to any of them and no further hassle. Pretty amazing, eh?

Well, it gets better. If you have got a user id or a screen name for the various IM protocols you can actually log in to all of them at the same time and they will be integrated into a single contact list all of them separated accordingly. Pretty much like what other meta-IM clients, like Gaim or Trillian do. But without the need of having to install anything else. And on top of that, if that is not enough, all the different passwords are encrypted using 1024-bit RSA keys, which sounds to me like a good way to protect your privacy. Really nice.

As I said, this new web offering is still under the Alpha status, but I am sure it will grow further to become a very good option to help people on the move to work seamlessly with their online contacts wherever they may be and still have access to not only the information but also the experts providing that information. I shall be keeping an eye further on this particular offering as I am sure they will be adding a whole bunch of new features as it progresses further into Beta and then perhaps a full production environment. But so far things are looking good, very good !. Now I would love to see Skype or Damaka, or even Gizmo Project being added to the list of options available and at that point I think we would all be off to a superb effort of integrating all IM and VoIP clients into a single point of entry. And that would be way cool, folks, don’t you think ?

Blurb.com : Free Book Publishing Software : Design & Publish

Since people first put ink to papyrus, books have captured our best thinking, learning and experiences. They are the legacy that each generation provides for the next.

Everywhere you look, new technology is letting regular people participate in parts of our culture once accessible only to the elite few. Today, anyone with Web access can share their opinions online, with the click of a mouse. In the same way, Blurb helps ordinary people express their passions and record their experiences in books to share with their families, communities and the world.

Making a book is a transformational experience.

I have yet to have a conversation about Blurb where the other person does not start talking – animatedly – about "their" book. Whether it's an archive of rare movie posters, a collection of favorite blog postings or favorite Italian recipes, a trip to the Amazon rainforest, or the story of a beloved grandparent's journey through Ellis Island – it seems every person has a book in mind. And there is nothing in the world like seeing that book printed and bound for the first time. Serious goosebumps.

We believe in books, and the people who make them, too. In the weeks and months to come, we'll be launching a community of authors and bookmaking specialists – a place to find the content, camaraderie, inspiration and guidance to make your books everything they can be. We'll also be launching new e-commerce tools that allow you to profit from your creations. So stay tuned – there's much more to come.

Dooce

'Bridget Jones' blogger fire fury
British secretary in Paris becomes Online 'cause celebre'

LONDON, England (CNN) -- A British secretary working in Paris who says she was fired because her Paris employer objected to her Weblog has provoked an old and New Media storm.

Unmarried mother Catherine Sanderson -- "La Petite Anglaise" to 3,000 regular readers of her Internet diary -- is launching legal action in France, claiming unfair dismissal against accountancy firm Dixon Wilson, British media reports say.

The "old fashioned" firm was never named in her blog. Sanderson, 33, also remained anonymous -- except for her photograph on her Web site.

Now Sanderson claims to have been "dooced" -- the New Media term for getting fired for what you write in a blog after a Web designer lost her job for writing about her job and colleagues on her site, Dooce.com.

Strumpette

Who Is Strumpette?
By Howard Kurtz
Washington Post Staff Writer
Wednesday, July 19, 2006; 8:54 AM

She seems to know an awful lot about the public relations industry.

She describes her new blog as "A Naked Journal of the PR Business," and includes a naked (if carefully posed) photo.

She calls herself Strumpette . And plenty of smart people are trying to figure out who she is, especially after reading her bio. Under the name Amanda Chapel, it says: "I have 15 plus years experience in marketing communications . . . I am 5' 4" tall, athletic, Pantene shoulder-length black hair, perfect perky boobs. I present well and am most accomodating. I've slept with clients. I sleep with my boss. I am the consummate PR strumpette."With a mix of industry news, gossip, criticism and sex items, Strumpette.com sprinkles high-toned dissections of the flaws and foibles of the PR business with personal insults and the occasional expletive. Strumpette's posts are quite pugnacious, under such headlines as "PR Mega-Firm's CEO Caught in Big Lie," "Exposing the Communist Blogifesto" and "Word-of-Mouth Marketing: Viagra for the PR Business."

Wizbang

What is Wizbang?

Wizbang is a unique mix of news, politics, and entertainment. Wizbang has grown steadily into one of the most popular conservative weblogs on the Internet. Since it's founding in April 2003, and has over 5 million unique visitors. Don't ask me to explain Wizbang's rise in popularity, but I imagine it's a function of topicality, humor, and insight.

Yours Is a Very Bad Hotel


In the early morning hours (about 2:00 AM) of 15 November 2001, two men from Seattle arrived at a Doubletree Club Hotel (a subsidiary of Hilton) in Houston, Texas, where they had arranged guaranteed reservations via credit card for the evening of 14 November. They were not only chagrined to discover that the available rooms at this DoubleTree Hotel had long since been assigned; they were also rather miffed at finding themselves confronted with a desk clerk who was decidedly unapologetic about the mix-up, unsympathetic to their plight, and unhelpful at making alternate arrangements for them. (The clerk finally secured less-than-desirable accommodations for them at a
cheaper, lower-quality hotel several miles away.) 

To express their displeasure with this disappointing experience in customer service, the two men used Microsoft's PowerPoint software to prepare a cutting, humorous "graphic complaint" entitled "Yours is a Very Bad Hotel" for the management of the Houston Doubletree. Like so many other communications involving customer-business disputes these days, this one has been set loose on the Internet for millions of people all over the world to receive and read via e-mail.

YouTube - Concerto for Piano and Orchestra No. 26 Coronation Mozart


8 year old girl amazed jury and audience



With her little body and small hands,an eight-year-old-girl exhibited
outstanding maturity and infinite musical talent. She, Miss Aimi
Kobayashi won at the grade under 15 years old(Jr.G grade), leaving
other participants far behind.

At the final round, she performed Beethoven Sonata No.10-1, Chopin
Etude op.25-2 and Nocturne. Her music was really coming from inside,
and was expressed thoroughly on the piano. The Chief Jury, Prof.Mieko
Harimoto(head professor of piano faclulty, Tokyo Music College)
addressed "Construction of Beethoven Sonata, concentration to play
the 3rd movement without any disruption, was remarkable. And her
technique was really proficient." Prof.Yoheved Kaplinsky (head
professor of Juilliard School) who also served as an adjudicator of
Jr.G grade, praised her distinguished talent and maturity which was
well beyond the expectation.

The emergence of this little pianist is not by chance. Prof.Harimoto
analyzed that the development of educational materials for young
piano learners are greatly dedicated. For instance, the assistant
pedaling system has been developed, so that even young children under
140cm can play with sensitive and natural pedaling. This was invented
by one of the PTNA members, whose idea was based upon researches and
experiments over 10 years.

The efforts to make better education materials helps the innovation
of piano study in Japan. Ms.Kobayashi will play in Paris next March
with three other Japanese young pianists.
