Give Post-its a home

A Post-it fits just right on a 3"x5" card. I stick some in spiral-bound card book.

This 3x5 index card folio from Mead is something I picked up from Wal-Mart's stationery department for under $3. The original cards that came with the folio were part of Mead's "Collections by Cambridge" product. Online it goes for $3.45, but I found it for about $2. I didn't like the flowery index cards it came with (not manly enough), so I swapped them out for a plainer-looking spiral bound set. Add another $1 for the replacement cards, and you're still coming out pretty cheap. The pen is a Pilot G2 mini.

Having it with me is great for jotting quick ideas. It's more robust and durable than a pack of Post-its, and besides, Post-its don't come in a spiral bound format with a cover and room for a pen!

Google@Work seminar, JotSpot, and Wikis

Google continues on its "parallel-universe" path to (friendly--not evil) world domination (parallel to Microsoft's attempts, that is) by expanding its reach into the Enterprise application space.  In a recent free seminar held in Columbus, Google demonstrated some of its offerings in the enterprise, including:

  • Google Maps for Enterprises - Provide the power and functionality of Google's web-based mapping technologies in internal websites and critical applications that require support. With Google Maps for Enterprise, organizations of all types can integrate data and seamlessly create a high performance web-based mapping experience.

    Ideal for applications such as workforce management, operations/logistics and CRM, Google Maps for Enterprise provides fast performance through the Google Maps API which is recognized for helping spur the web mashup phenomenon. Users benefit from the ease of use that people love about the consumer Google Maps offering, and satellite imagery provides detailed views of the Earth. Google Maps for Enterprise also features enterprise-grade support and service.

  • Google Earth for Enterprises - Explore geographic information with the power of Google Earth Enterprise, a 3D visualization of the earth that integrates, organizes and publishes your enterprise's location data.  Host your data locally and then overlay it on top of Google's.  Your employees use a specialized Google Earth client to access your local datasets and study them through Google Earth's fluid 3D interface.
  • Google Apps for Enterprises - includes Gmail, Google Talk, Google Calendar, Google Docs & Spreadsheets
  • Use a Bank Bag for Loose Items In Your Work Bag

    Does this count as a "man purse?"

    Posting from IMified

    I'm posting this entry through my MSN Messenger account via the IMified service (see They offer a lot of widgets that allow you to access functionality from many of your online services by using your IM client. Very cool, but isn't this old school terminal window interfaces all over again?
