I have a terrible habit of opening tabs in my browser with the intention of reading them in the evening and perhaps commenting on them if I have something to contribute to the discussion or wish to pass on a tip or trick. Well, it’s been pretty busy this week and I haven’t had a chance to blog. Currently, there are 18 open tabs, some related to each other, that I intended to blog about.
For now, I’m just going to post some quick comments for I fear I won’t get back to this list soon.
I’m following up my 5 links post from two weeks ago with another 5 links. I took a look at my Delicious list and found I have not bookmarked much lately. I know I’ve been busy but didn’t realize I’ve been quite so busy. So I’ll pull a couple of oldies but goodies to go with some new finds.
Heal Your Church WebSite – Dean Peters always has good stuff about web design and good management behavior to consider. I’ve been following his articles for a couple of years now. I usually find a morsel or two of value everytime.
OpenID – The buzz around OpenID is growing. The idea is simple. One username and password that will authenticate you onto many accounts and services across the Internet. I’ve started using it for any site that will accept it. I even have delegation setup for my website. Much more cooperation between big players is needed for this to succeed but the ground swell is well underway and it’s all good!
Yuda Freedom – I’m not sure I will find myself using this service often. But I will definitely be suggesting it to others who need to publish a document but might not be very web-savvy or are in a hurry to display their work in an easy to use format. That’s what Yuda does. You turn your work into a PDF file and upload it to Yuda. Yuda makes the document interactive.
Teens Today with Vanessa Van Petten – I first heard of Vanessa Van Petten on Jumping Monkeys 43. Since then I have read some of her articles and am really enjoying her work. She tries to connect parents and teens together. I’m still a long way from being the parent of a teenager. But I work with teens everyday and any advise is helpful. Listen to Jumping Monkeys and then add her to your RSS reader.
That’s all for today. What neat new place on the Internet have you discovered this week? I would love to see your link in the comments!
