Twitter, Diggo, and Jott


Today at the Web Task Force Meeting at Gettysburg we had a discussion that centered around Social Networking. I actually did a demo of Twitter (see previous post) at the meeting today where I showed the tool and some of the uses and then how it is starting to work with other social networking sites like Facebook. I thought the task force was quite impressed with how it updated my Facebook status.

2 other sites that our VP of Information Technology Rod Tosten talked about were interesting and I thought worth checking out:

1. DIGGO – http://www.diigo.com/ – a research and knowledge sharing tool where you can put “sticky notes” and highlight webpages and people in your group can then see them. I have not had an opportunity to try it yet but thought I would share the url here.

2. Jott – http://www.jott.com/ – for those of you who spend a lot of time in the car this one has real power. You are able to send an email from your cell phone.

    Twitter and Jott play well together, too.

  2. At W&M, we are planning now to transition our Web Redesign Advisory Committee into a permanent advisory and governance group for the web our our campus.

    Your insights and successes with such a group would be very helpful. Any future blog posts planned for the topic of web governance?

    Sounds like a good topic for a post – I will have to put something together
