Mapping del.icio.us with Anthracite and OmniGraffle Several people have asked me how I produced the visualizations that I used in my talk on del.icio.us. While those visualizations were constructed with a rather eclectic mixture of homebrewed code, assorted applications, and a good bit of elbow grease, I decided to put together a tutorial for people who might be interested in this type of visual exploration, but are not inclined to write custom Perl code to do so. Hence, I have selected a combination of two very nice applications for Mac OS X - Anthracite and OmniGraffle - to produce similar visualizations. Neither application is free, but both have free trial periods, should you be inclined to check them out. As an alternative to OmniGraffle, the excellent open source program Graphviz may be used, although it is less user-friendly than OmniGraffle.
! Google Ultimate Interface About Google In 1996-1997, Larry Page and Sergey Brin came up with an algorithm to rank web pages, called PageRank. Realizing the potential to improve search engines, they tried and failed to sell the technology to any. So they founded Google, which in an incredibly short period of time has become one of the world’s most powerful companies. While primarily known as a search engine, Google now makes a wide variety of web-based and other software and is known for investing in wide-ranging projects outside their core such as through their philanthropic arm, Google.org. Their products are available in almost every country and in a very large number of languages. How You Can Use Microsoft OneNote for Project Management OneNote is more than a note taking program. It’s the ideal collaboration tool for managing simple projects in small teams. And unlike Evernote, OneNote is completely free.
Winslew You might know this – you just found a nice webpage you want to read but have no time right at this moment? Maybe you create a bookmark for it – then you forget about it and remember it while on a long flight or being not connected to the internet. Wouldn’t it be cool to have such webpages marked for reading it later and having cached version of all this webpages on your notebook?
Identify a Font. Font and Typeface Identification tools. What font is that? Ever seen a typeface (font) you like but couldn’t identify it? I once knew an Art Director who was able to identify just about any typeface I showed him. Deep Web Search Engines Where to start a deep web search is easy. You hit Google.com and when you brick wall it, you go to scholar.google.com which is the academic database of Google. After you brick wall there, your true deep web search begins. You need to know something about your topic in order to choose the next tool. To be fair, some of these sites have improved their index-ability with Google and are now technically no longer Deep Web, rather kind-of-deep-web.
This Feature Can Make OneNote More Productive Than Evernote OneNote and Evernote are both fantastic note-taking applications and they each have several amazing features that the other lacks — but there’s one feature in OneNote that stands out as both unique and productivity-boosting. We’re talking about OneNote’s Docking feature, which allows OneNote to “dock” to any side of the screen and prevent other windows from overlapping. It’s a relatively simple feature, but once you start using it, you’ll wonder how you lived without it. Docking is particularly useful when you’re taking notes from another window and you find yourself constantly switching from that window to OneNote to jot down your notes. 9 Free Tools For Link Discovery & Content Creation Every day it seems that there’s a new tool out there to monitor, measure, track, and suggest what we should be doing. Many of these are free or offer free trials, which I love, but finding the time to test out a new tool in order to see if it suits you isn’t always easy. My objective in using these tools is, of course, building links, so I’ll go over the tools that I use and show you how I’d use them. And hey, they’re all free!! For the record, I’m not interested in competitive analysis, analyzing sites, using social media (with one notable exception, and my exclusion here is only because that topic has been well covered both on this site and elsewhere) or examining existing backlinks. I’m interested in using these tools to help with finding new link sources and creating new content.
