Research/SEARCH - foursquare (website) Foursquare is a location-based social networking website for mobile devices, such as smartphones. Users "check in" at venues using a mobile website, text messaging or a device-specific application by selecting from a list of venues the application locates nearby.[3] Location is based on GPS hardware in the mobile device or network location provided by the application, and the map is based on data from the OpenStreetMap project. Each check-in awards the user points and sometimes "badges". Foursquare is the second iteration of the same idea, that people can use mobile devices to interact with their environment.

Places To Visit, Trip Planner, Travel & Vacation Ideas Research/SEARCH - Anti-Facebook Social Network “Unthink” Launches To Public Scrappy outsider startup, which bills itself as the “anti-Facebook,” is opening up its doors today, allowing in its first round of beta testers. The Tampa-based company with $2.5 million in funding from DouglasBay Capital sees itself as a more open, more honest form of social networking – one where its users are the owners of their data, and not the product being sold to advertisers. Unthink is the kind of startup that could only come from outside of traditional tech hotspots like Silicon Valley or New York, as there’s a certain level of audacity, and perhaps even ignorance, that you need in order to think you have a shot at displacing social networking giant Facebook and all of its 800 million users. And taking down Facebook is the core of Unthink’s marketing campaign. She explained that the idea for Unthink came to her when her son wanted to sign up for Facebook and she read the terms of service. (Above: a profile after sign-up) On Unthink, user data isn’t sold to brands.

7thDwarf Gold | The 7thDwarf - Mining Gold for Your Business Zotero Review On its website, Zotero is described "is a free, easy-to-use Firefox extension to help you collect, manage, and cite your research sources." Even though it’s been out for a while, I somehow didn’t run into it until a few months ago. I’ve used it for a while and have switched over from using Endnote because I like it that much, below is my review. Here is my two sentence review of Zotero: If Evernote and Endnote had sex and made a baby, Zotero would be that baby. If that is all you need to know, go ahead and try it out, it's free for crying out loud. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. Overall, I’m quite happy with Zotero, and I find myself saving more papers than before and doing literature searches a lot faster and a lot more efficiently than before, which is a plus. What do you think of Zotero?
