Over on GovLoop, Susan Scrupski made an appeal for "Web 2.0 Zealots" to list their Top 10 2.0 Tools for the sake of Sunlight Foundation co-Founder Ellen Miller.
Here's the survey.
And here are my responses:
1. Yuuguu - Screen sharing. I use it at least twice a week so that me and others are 'on the same page.'
2. Doodle - Got a large group and can't nail down a meeting time? This is the tool for you.
3. Calameo - I convert my documents to this book-like format as it offers a "cool" factor and it's embeddable and downloadable.
4. TalkShoe - Create podcasts in minutes. Record a teleconference and make it downloadable to your PDA...just in case you missed it (or slept through it).
5. Go2Web20 - Don't go here. Seriously, you will spend hours on this website...if you are a true "Web 2.0 Zealot." It's the Mecca, the Holy Grail, the main mine in the 2.0 Gold Rush. Don't say I didn't warn you!
6. Twhirl - Superior to Tweetdeck, IMHO. Similar functionality, but takes less of your screen.
7. Pandora - Hands down, the coolest site on the web. If you like music, you will L-O-V-E Pandora. The element of surprise is it's hallmark.
8. Ning - Forget Facebook. Create your own customized version. I recently reserved my family name so that we'd all have one place to share thoughts, pictures, video, important dates, etc.
9. Skype - More like Web 3.0 as it allows anytime, anywhere free calling user-to-user with video and chat. Talk to and see your international friends, family and colleagues for free.
10. Audacity - The step beyond TalkShoe. If you want to edit what you created in TalkShoe, you can do it here. If you want a free way to create and enhance podcasts from scratch, welcome to your best friend.
What are your Top 10?
