"... Grokker builds precise and detailed knowledge maps containing visual cues and relationships between the data. The map itself contains powerful metadata that vividly describes the "nature" of the data collection. The Grokker product enables map generation and the ability to collaborate, extend, edit, delete, save, and share any attribute or subset of the map. Because the map contains only the records' metadata, it has a small footprint on the desktop or, most importantly, the PDA or other handheld device with limited storage space. The actual records, such as HTML pages, are accessed by traversing the web with a web browser. This approach allows the Grokker to negotiate any type of network, file system, or database saving time, resources, and most importantly, generates far more useful results. ..."
A new online reader for magazines. Looks pretty neat.
"... You've authored a document and you'd like your peers to review it. Quick Doc ReviewSM gives you an instant private space for gathering comments on any HTML document (Microsoft Word documents too). Your group can comment on each paragraph, using Quick Topic's easy private forum. Comments are all in one central place. Much better than mailing documents around and consolidating feedback. And it's private, but still easy to access.
You can start your document review in about one minute. It's even easier for your readers -- they don't have to register or sign in. ..."
This is a tool that I have pointed a number of people to. A couple have had good results using it for reviewing docs. I keep thinking of this as quick doc / quickdoc.

"... Our product (code-named "Chandler" after the great detective novelist Raymond Chandler), is a Personal Information Manager (PIM) intended for use in everyday information and communication tasks, such as composing and reading email, managing an appointment calendar and keeping a contact list. Because of the ease with which Chandler users can share information with others, we might call Chandler the first Interpersonal Information Manager. (The term PIM was first used in conjunction with the product Lotus Agenda in the 1980's. Chandler is the spiritual descendant of Agenda (and has a common designer in Mitch Kapor.) ..."
A British doctor says "Medicine in my country is so advanced that we can take a kidney out of one man put it in another and have him looking for work in six weeks."
A German doctor says, "That's nothing, we can take a lung out of one person put it in another and have him looking for work in four weeks."
A Russian doctor says, "In my country medicine is so advanced we can take half a heart out of one person put it in another and have them both looking for work in two weeks."
An American doctor, not to be outdone, says, "You guys are way behind, we just took a man with no brain out of Texas, put him in the White House, and now half the country is looking for work, and the other half preparing for war..."

Videoconferencing over IP using an Apple G4/PowerPC and Tulane Medical School's custom software
"... On Thursday morning, June 20, 2002 at the 12th Annual Conference for Law School Computing, Professor John Baker from the Louisiana State University Paul M. Hebert Law Center and Doctor Bruce Bowdish of Tulane Medical School demonstrated a software-only videoconferencing system that runs over standard IP networks. The quality of the picture was astonishing and many commented that it was equivalent or better to dedicated-hardware solutions or ISDN-based videoconferencing solutions. ..."
Here's a site where art is created on a large scale. As I understand it these are "maps" or designs developed by a person using Geographic Positioning Systems to chart their path over land, water or air. Most amazing.
"... For any one-topic group discussion, use the Quick Topic free web forum instead of just email!

That's because Quick Topic is a super-easy single-topic web bulletin board that's also fully email-enabled: you can get and post messages via email. Use it on your web site too. Thousands served. ..."
