Web Designer magazine Relaunched, web 2.0 and im sick still

Im sick, ive missed two days off college and i have to go in because I have a sociology test tomorrow :(.

Though i may just miss it ;). Anyway onto more intersting things:
Web Designer Relaunced and web 2.0 sites

Well Web designer magazine came through the post yesterday. I had forgotten that the magazine even exited due to all the problems with the publisher (Higubury). So i read it and i wasn’t that impressed with it, though it id have an interesting article about web 2.0, it included an interview with Sam Schillace, one of the co-founders of Writely, which i found somewhat interesting.

In the article though it did feature a few sites that are using web 2.0 technologies. These are Box.net – an online file storage system, which allows you to store your files from documents to music online. It will cost you but there is a free package, i got this from the site:

Free Online Storage Access important files from any computer Share photos, and files too big for email Synchronize and backup folders Sub-accounts and RSS feeds for groups 1GB for free or 5GB for only $4.99/mo

It definetly worth a look, ill be cheking that out in the future sometime.

The next one was Backapit another organisation tool that is part of 37signals.com.

www.kiko.com is an oline calendar, then there was Writely and Flickr.

Next one was protopage, a pplace containg a wide variety of information, i got this from the website:

Protopage = personalized news + sticky notes + photos
+ email + weather + bookmarks, all on one page.

I had a lot of fun with this site just moving stuff around on the home page.

Then there was remember the milk.com, i got this fromt he website:

Achieve Domestic Bliss.

Never forget the milk (or anything else) again.

Remember The Milk is the easiest and best way to manage your to-do lists online. Here are just a few of the reasons why it’s so cool:

    • Features galore.
      • Sharing, publishing, notes… we’ve got it all.
    • Get reminded.
      • Receive reminders via email, instant messenger, and SMS.
    • It’s free.
      Hard to believe, we know, but it’s true.

They’re all web based and free, so have fun.
