Office 2.0 Database

Having trouble keeping track of all the companies that are building the current crop of web-based office apps? The Office 2.0 Database is a handy directory of all of 'em, broken down into categories. Need a web-based word processor? You've got eight to choose from. PowerPoint replacement? Five of 'em, and so on.
Office 2.0 Database: "Development Tool"


Web 2.0 has some great new things. Think Free is an online office, complete with 1 GB space and collaboration available. Check out the way applications will be in the future.

Sabifoo is a service that lets you create and add items to an RSS feed simply by sending IMs. It's a delightfully minimal service. There's no registration or sign-on, and in fact you can get started without even visiting the Sabifoo web site. Just send a message to sabifoo on your IM service of choice (or for MSN or Jabber) and it'll be added to your RSS feed. You can type !help to get a link to the help page as well as your RSS feed. One thing that's missing (at least when using AIM) is text formatting, but hopefully they'll get around to that. I can think of a number of uses for this, in particular linkblogs and sending yourself notes from your mobile phone.

The cost of spam

Did you know that spam’s going to cost us $198 billion next year?

* That’s a laptop computer, xBox 360, the yet to be released PlayStation 3, a PSP, broadband Internet for a year, and cell phone and PDA — for every public school child in the United States. (Video Game Consoles Reviews)
* It’s almost four million more teachers. (Digest of Education Statistics)
* Six Category five withstanding levees and floodgates around New Orleans. (All Things Considered)
* That’s four times would it would cost to end chronic hunger in the world (Allen).

We need to make clear to children that spam, virus, and hacking are not a game, that they cost us all a lot.
