New Glu Goo

I am still liking the Glu. It seems SuprGlu is gaining some traction (judging from seeing other Glu-ers out there, Jay Cross, Tim Lauer, Scottish Educators, I am sure there are many more) and some new features (judging from poking around the site).

Hypnotic Bookmarking

As the tawdry saying goes… “I Like to watch” It’s not what your dirty minds think… I was one of more than 100 people watching LiveMarks, a near real time window of the input to the social bookmarking pile called del.icio.us: LiveMarks is a project to show del.icio.us bookmarks live. On the left of LiveMarks […]
