Good morning everyone!
This week I found a couple of useful websites I would like to mention to everyone :
conversate.org just launched today or yesterday, I think. It’s a site to have short conversations with several people – kind of like an instant blog, but more concentrated on the comments section.
Backpack launched today, about 5 minutes ago. I had a Golden Ticket, so I have used it for a couple of days already, and I think it’s pretty neat. If you have a hard time keeping your thoughts and notes organized across computers, check it out. It is as clean and simple and easy to use as their excellent Basecamp application.
Also, the AnnualCreditReport.com site is one I just found. I had heard about it before, but I actually used it last night, and it’s pretty easy to use. Please go there and check your credit reports and challenge anything that doesn’t look familiar. You get a free credit report every 12 months.
I changed the front page of my website here around a little bit – added a picture of us (where my clothing matches the site colors) and cleaned up some of the styles a bit. What do you think?
Lastly, the big news is that I was invited to go to the Personal Democracy Forum conference in New York on May 16 for free. I am really interested in this conference and the ideas of many of the people speaking there. I’ll keep everyone up to date on what I see and do there. I’ll even see if I can get some podcasts going. Also, if you’re interested, they offered my readers a $100 discount on the registration fee. Just go to their website to register and enter the promo code ‘pdfc195’.
The Personal Democracy Forum Conference boasts a comprehensive roster of speakers including Meetup.com’s Scott Heiferman, SEIU’s Andy Stern, The RNC’s Michael Turk, Technorati’s David Sifry, Linux Journal’s Doc Searls, Grassroots Media’s Dan Gillmor, Craigslist’s Craig Newmark, bloggers Jeff Jarvis, Josh Marshall, Markos Moulitsas and Chris Nolan, and many more!
Also, thanks xian!
