  • 7. Wave Wrap-Up
    Wave is very buggy still and doesn’t work as well as it should.
    It is still invite-only.
    There are other tools that can do these things better.
  • 8. Chatroulette
  • 9. Image credit:
  • 10. Chatroulette Wrap-Up
    We don’t necessarily recommend using this product.
    You may see it in the library more and more, but right now most people are checking it out just to see instead of being repeat users.

  • 13. Google Buzz Wrap-Up
    Buzz = Twitter (or FriendFeed) but with more features.
    Lost some users initially with their privacy settings, but they have since changed them.
  • 14.
  • 15.
  • 16. posterous Wrap-Up
    Super easy blogging.
    Very easy to have multiple people collaborate on the blog, or have users collaborate, like Pioneer Press has done.
  • 17.
  • 18.
  • 19. vook Wrap-Up
    We don’t know how big this will get, not a ton of buzz about it.
    It is an interesting idea that will either really take off with Vook or with some other program similar to it.
  • 20.
  • 21. inkpop Wrap-Up
    This type of interaction by publishers may be seen more and more.
  • 22.
  • 23. 60 Second Recap Wrap-Up
    We love this!
    Great way to encourage reading mixed with new technologies (video, podcasting, etc.)
  • 24.
  • 25.
  • 26. foursquare Recap Wrap-Up
    Getting a lot of press!
    But it wasn’t the first mobile-location website, and it won’t be the last…

  • 32. Overall Wrap-Up
    Mobile tools will continue to grow.
    At most recently tech conference, SXSW, location-based tools are gaining the most ground.
