Web 2.0 Finds Post #4 (VSTE Conference)

I trust your Christmas break was a good one and a chance for you to recharge your batteries. I read two books and played in the snow with my daughters as well as scarfed food on a regular basis. It’s good to have some energy return!

The Web 2.0 posts continue:

print what you likePrinting Web Pages
Have you found a web site that you like, and print a whole page just to retrieve a small amount of “real estate” which you only wanted in the first place? Printwhatyoulike.com is a site that permits you to print that one specific part/thing that you want. Logon to their site, type in the URL, and follow the directions from there. It’s easy, simple, free, and most of all, is logical! You will need to sign up for an account.

From Screentoaster’s website:

–>Capture videos of onscreen action in one click
–>Record screencasts, tutorials, demos, training, lectures and more.
–>Share and stream videos online in Flash
–>Embed them on blogs and webpages or send them by email.

Saving Documents for Retrieval Elsewhere
You can file sync programs by saving them to Dropbox and retrieving from another computer. I haven’t tried it myself, but hear it is easy and useful.
