Notes from the session…

Jeff Wisniewski from U of Pittsburgh:

Yahoo Pipes—apply logic to feeds as you aggregate them, drag and drop, (e.g. scopusandwos pipe)

Google My Maps—MAKE ONE FOR ACADEMIC LIBRARIES OF BROOKLYN, METRO—mashup w/ onnyturf or hopstop?

Yahoo Design Pattern Library—like A Pattern Language! For web pages and interfaces! CSS examples, breadcrumbs, menus, etc.

What is my IP? whatismyipaddress.com

Rasterbator—upload an image and blow it up to about 20×30 sheets of paper to make enormous posters

Darlene Fichter:

Firefox Linkify—auto search for url on highlighted word
Pixer.us online photo editor
Trailfire web tours—don’t need the extension to see the tour (works in IE) private, public
Myxter tones—ringtones
Mybloglog—site stats
Swivel—data visualization
Many Eyes (alphaworks IBM)— can upload data (e.g. tag cloud analysis from Gutenberg, comparison btwn multiple works)

Frank Cervone:

Google Webmaster Tools—help view website from outside (e.g. are some things protected that shouldn’t be?), links in from other sites

Google sitemap—xml file that tells google what it should be looking for
Sitemapbuilder.net—builds site map for you via spider, linkchecker
