Peg it up, Move it Around, Get it Done. It became a catch phrase across Skype as we built Pegby: let's go to the Board . Using an unlimited number of Boards , you can collaborate with friends, family, co-workers and even strangers...if you like that sort of thing. We've seen boards with twenty Columns , which is no big deal for Pegby. With sweet minimization and drag and drop capability, create as many Columns as you'd like but focus on the ones that matter to you in the moment. Pegby began with the Card . Pegby's core strength and flexibility comes from the simple, good-natured Card .

Military Theory of War, Warfare Theory, Principles of War, Military Strategy, Theories, Theorists Never neglect the psychological, cultural, political, and human dimenstions of warfare, which is inevitably tragic, inefficient, and uncertain. Be skeptical of systems analysis, computer models, game theories, or doctrines that suggest otherwise. --- Secretary of Defense Robert Gates, speech at NDU, 29 Sep 2008 Rumsey Historical Map Collection The David Rumsey Map Collection was started over 25 years ago and contains more than 150,000 maps.

Curation Guide Depending on your point of view, content on the internet can be a vast collection of treasures, a cesspool swimming in filth, or a big pile of gold specks mixed in with an even bigger pile of dirt. My guess is that most people lean towards the last one, giving rise to content curation, the process of finding the gold among the dirt, as a very popular online activity. At its most basic, content curation is the process of finding, organizing, and presenting content from the flood of information and media that inundate the web by the second. Similar to museum curators, content curators sift through a seemingly never-ending amount of digital objects to unearth individual items worthy of being showcased for a specific audience. Once the selection is finished, the curator presents those assembled elements under a cohesive theme, just like museum curators do for specific exhibitions.

7 Secrets of the Super Organized A few years ago, my life was a mess. So was my house, my desk, my mind. Then I learned, one by one, a few habits that got me completely organized. Am I perfect? Of course not, and I don’t aim to be. But I know where everything is, I know what I need to do today, I don’t forget things most of the time, and my house is uncluttered and relatively clean (well, as clean as you can get when you have toddlers and big kids running around). Scoopage Curation Guide Hi! My name is Gwyneth and I am NOT an expert at Digital Curation. But I'm learning! I joined Scoop.it! when it first came out, but it didn't "get it" and fall in love with it until I saw it in action this summer in Australia with Joyce Valenza!(I know, pinch me, right?)

Diigo is an online information management tool that can be used to collate, store, bookmark, highlight, and annotate just about anything you come across. There are many online bookmarking programs on the web, but Diigo is a far more powerful tool. It allows you to collaborate ideas and work from numerous different platforms including laptop, iPhone, iPad, Android as well as other online devices. This means that no matter where you are or what device you are using, your research ideas and note taking can be centrally stored. Everyone uses highlighters and sticky notes to annotate text books, and now you can do the same for all of your online research. See more at: by raviii Aug 29

Thanks to all for your comments. I'm looking for writing tools to : - list sources - list interlocutors - store links - write out - plan actions (interviews, ...) - annotate - share All these accessible from anywhere with any terminal (PC, Mac, iPad,...).
