Google Shared Stuff

Google's social side is more visible every day. A new service called "Shared Stuff" lets you share interesting links with your friends and the entire world. You need to drag a bookmarklet to your browser's link bar or to click on the "Share" button from a web page (the button can only be found at Google Video right now).

When you click on the button, a new window pops out and you can choose between posting the page to your profile, emailing it to your contacts or bookmarking the page using services like del.icio.us or furl.

A profile page is public and can include information about yourself, a photo, links to your sites.

This page lets you see the latest web pages shared by your Gmail contacts

it would be nice to have a special feed for your contacts and gadget that keeps you up-to-date.

Overall, the service adds the social component to Google Bookmarks and integrates a lot of ways to share content online. It will be interesting to see if Google manages to build a community around the new service and if you can rely on it to find and disseminate what's cool on the web. Google will probably allow you to add the "Share" button to your site so you can replace all the bookmarking/sharing buttons for del.icio.us, Digg, Facebook etc. and provide a better experience to your users.

100 Helpful Web Tools for Every Kind of Learner

For those unfamiliar with the term, a learning style is a way in which an individual approaches learning. Many people understand material much better when it is presented in one format, for example a lab experiment, than when it is presented in another, like an audio presentation. Determining how you best learn and using materials that cater to this style can be a great way to make school and the entire process of acquiring new information easier and much more intuitive. Here are some great tools that you can use to cater to your individual learning style, no matter what that is.

los widgets de Google ya soportan Canvas

Y no se limitan sólo a maximizar la ventana, sino que enriquecen su interfaz para aprovechar el incremento del área de visualización. De esta manera, pasamos de un modelo de página de inicio que permitía visualizar información y enlazar servicios, a otro que permite crear contenidos y embeber servicios, permitiendo utilizarlos sin perder el contexto de iGoogle.

Los widgets de Google que he visto con soporte para Canvas view son: Gmail, Google Calendar, Google Reader, Google Docs (muy pobre) y Google Notebook. Seguramente habrá más.

PD-1: he escrito este correo desde el widget de Gmail en modo Canvas dentro de iGoogle.
PD-2: me va a venir de perlas para no tener que abrir tantas pestañas en Firefox (sobre todo la de Gmail, que pone la cpu a tope) y hacer que el navegador vaya más ligero.
