Disclaimers The list of tools in this presentation is, by no means, exhaustive. While I try to find sites that have nothing objectionable on them, sometimes it’s a little tough. There are a lot of links in this presentation – the only one you really need to write down is www.sharetabs.com/?web20casc. I have linked to every site in this presentation at this address. You may find this presentation at http://www.slideshare.net/jonesian1/exploring-the-new-world-wide-web, should you want to review it later.
