WebEnabled looks like an interesting software sales/services platform. Developers can build pre-built applications and servers. One example might be an open source CMS configured for a specific industry with a suite of associated plugins to support the functionalities required by its use case. I'm thinking this is something like an installer profile with the developer's own code bundled in. Developers can then sell clones of their applications, consulting services, and ongoing support to customers. Customers can buy and host the application anywhere they like.
M Cubed Software's Code Collector Pro for the Mac lets you save and organize your code snippets into a library of taggable records.
Minutes is a sweet little dashboard timer. Move an arrow around the dial to set the number of minutes. Keep spinning around for more than 60 minutes. The app displays the clock time for when the alarm will go off. Set the alarm to use one of the included tones or to play an iTunes playlist. Click on it to toggle on/off. Nice.
S3Hub allows you to view your S3 online storage, upload, download, set permissions, share with friends and more.
This week I'll be starting another new stage in my career, as I take on the role of Director of User Experience at Traction Software, Inc, marking my return to the subjects you've read me blogging about in the past: design of information retrieval and content management systems, knowledge management, and social networking and social software for the enterprise.
It's with great pleasure that I return to work on the application I used as a client, and to the team that I contributed some interface design work to over a year ago as a consultant. You'll be reading me return to blogging about the topics I mentioned above, but this time from the design and product development end of the conversation. Previously I wrote mainly about grassroots needs for social software and km and how blog/wiki tools meet these needs. In addition, I expect to show details of the application and its use for various forms of personal and enterprise knowledge management. I've used this tool in the past on a range of needs, including serving as a tracking system for usability testing issues, documenting project information (wiki style), and simply for logging my own projects and todo lists (personal km style wiki).
There will be more to come. I look forward to sharing with you.
This is pretty excellent. Check out the demo. This is a new flash-based contextual help app. When you click a tool, you see two tabs--one is an Adobe tab that shows related Help topics, the second is a del.icio.us tab that shows helpful links (e.g. Tutorials) from delicious. They're using a single del.icio.us account to feed this tab.
To check this out in Illustrator CS3, go to Window > Adobe Labs > knowhow.
I can't wait to try Scrybe. Best DOM scripting/AJAX I've seen on personal information management software. Google should buy these guys because they really seem to have gotten the interaction right.
