Everything 2.0

every.jpgEverything 2.0 has a pretty impressive collection of health sites with a web 2.0 twist (think social networking, wisdom of crowds, RSS, collective intelligence). Mostly medical but a few exceptions. Very nice to see PsychAntenna make the list!!). For those who like finding new and interesting sites, Everything 2.0 has links to over 7500 web2.0 sites. Phew, that is some serious cataloging.

Diigo Research Tool Matures

diigo.jpgI use Diigo to bookmark psychology websites I find as I surf the web. I have been using it for at least 18-months now and have found it to be an invaluable tool. Admittedly, I am a pretty low-key user. I use only the basic bookmarking function, and have the toolbar installed on my work and home computer so I can access my bookmarks in either setting. To my credit, I was brave enough to set up a PsychSplash Psychology Group on Diigo where I have been posting links to psychology sites for the last 12 months. You can access my public list here (with RSS feed here) and the PsychSplash Psychology group here (with RSS feed here).

Just the other day, they launched version 3 which has really expanded the collaborative, community and social potential of the site. Therefore I recommend spending a little time familiarizing yourself with the site and Diigo have done a good job of covering their features in the demo video and “learn more” sections. For those who would like it in a quick and dirty format however, you can think of the site along 4 lines (taken from their “learn more section”)

1)  As a personal research tool – bookmark web content you like, accessible from any computer with web access, organize bookmarks according to tags and lists, share your bookmarks with others through your blog or website.

2) As a collaborative research platform – organize team-based research by organizing groups where multiple members share bookmarks on a specific topic.

3) As a guide to social content – find the most popular content on certain topics, find similar sites to the one you are currently browsing, subscribe to users to who find great sites.

4) As a knowledge sharing community – connect with people with similar interests through bookmarks & tags.

If you spend a bit of time online and use the web for research or browse extensively, Diigo is worth a look in terms of managing what you find. Oh yeah, its free.

onehitwonder.org – charity $1 at a time

A simple charitable concept. “What if everyone in the world gave you one dollar? Have you wondered what you’d do with it? We have, and we’d like to see how many people across the planet will give a dollar, and then we’ll give it away to the poorest communities in the world. Our aim is to gather 7.29 million dollars, one dollar at a time“. Visit onehitwonder.org to take part in this unique (why didn’t someone think of this before) concept. Participating is easy, you just donate your $1 via Paypal. I just donated by dollar which will either be going towards a) health services in Africa or b) the pocket of the intelligent scammer who set up the site. Given the partners involved, I think (and hope) this is the real deal.

PS – thanks to my friend Penny for pointing this one out.
