Diigo Links 04/05/2007 – The Cool Tools Edition (oh yeah and the UMich degree too)

Mozilla Labs: The Coop

  • A prototype nextgen browser which obviously recognizes the value of Flock’s contributions considering the screenshots on the Lab page. I’m thinking that if Twitter support and shared webpage browsing were included that this could be a terrific real-time point-to-point collaboration environment. Wonder how much weight this is being given in the Lab venue?

Epsilen Environment – An ePortfolio tool

  • Currently providing free accounts to holders of a .edu email address during their beta period with the expectation that this will turn into a commercial venture aimed at K-12 and Higher Ed institutions, although not dismissing corporate utility. My test profile can be viewed at: http://jemartin.plymouth.epsilen.com
