Awesomeness off of the internet for November 9th to November 16th:
- Digital engagement governance – a dichotomy between hyperlocal or partnership managed by Michele Ide-Smith – "My perception is that developing and maintaining a successful hyperlocal online resource will require commitment, coordination (of volunteers), skills (e.g. researching, investigating, writing, communicating, technology), time and local knowledge. Tenacity and a willingness to work with a diverse cross-section of community members will also be invaluable."
- WordPress › XEN Carousel « WordPress Plugins – "Call out sections of your site by easily creating a carousel of images, associated to posts or pages, for display on your home page or anywhere on your site."
- BBC – dot.life: Computing for older users: Patronising or practical? – "Whether or not Simplicity Computing succeeds will be a big test of two things – the appetite of older people to get online and the attractiveness of open source software as a means of dealing with digital exclusion."
- Tom’s Planner | Gantt Chart Software | Faster than Excel easier than MS Project – "Tom's Planner, allows you to create and share Gantt Charts online with "drag and drop" sim- plicity. It has great ease of use and gives control back to the project manager."
- Google Apps adds Postini security software – Techworld.com – "When completed, this extension of the Postini security and management capabilities could go a long way toward calming concerns from CIOs and IT managers about using Web-hosted software like Google Apps." – a potentially important move for use of Google Apps in government?
