Today we thought to write a little different blog and share some of the tools we at Tignum use to handle the energy draining information overload on the web. When we researched for the ideal tools we had a couple of criteria, which needed to be ticked off. They have to make our life easier (fast, simple, slick) // they have to help us to constantly increase our knowledge // they have to have a good look and feel // they have to help us to organize and structure great information. So let me share my five tools which I use and like a lot:
.01 Instapaper (www.instapaper.com): A fast, easy, free tool to save web pages for reading later. It also comes with an iphone app.
.02 Alltop (http://my.alltop.com): MyAlltop enables you to create a “personal, online magazine rack” of your favorite websites and blogs. You can create a personal collection from over 32,000 information sources.
.03 Evernote (www.evernote.com): Use Evernote to save your ideas, things you see, and things you like. Then find them all on any computer or device (also with a great blackberry and iphone app) you use.
.04 Readability (http://lab.arc90.com/experiments/readability): This is a tool that makes reading on the web more enjoyable by removing the clutter around what your're reading.
.05 Quietube (www.quietube.com): This tool let's you watch videos without ads, comments and other clutter.
The fun thing is - all tools are free:-)) Let me know what tools you are using to become more efficient.
