MicroMobs: Easily Create Real Time Collaborative Chat Groups

Online social networks are a great way to stay in touch with our friends and family. But these networks cannot always be satisfactory. Take Facebook for instance. When we share content on Facebook we do not have full control over who gets to see the content. And with Facebook’s ever changing privacy settings, we cannot get a grip on how the system works.

MashPedia The Real-time Encyclopedia Searches Many Online Sources In One Go

The sources in most online encyclopedias are static. Take Wikipedia for example. User submitted articles on Wikipedia have fixed sources for their articles. A change in the source therefore can present a problem for that particular article.

Suppose there was an encyclopedia with the latest sources accompanying its article on a subject. Not only will that be a great help to the encyclopedia’s user, but it would make the article more reliable as well.

7 Situations When Designers Outsource (To Other Designers)

Have you ever missed a client deadline because you were too busy? Ever had a client request a type of design that you don’t offer? One of the best kept secrets of successful designers and studios is ‘designer-to-designer’ outsourcing. Designer-to-designer outsourcing involves one designer (such as a web design firm or graphic design studio) using another designer (often a freelance designer or sub-contractor) to help complete designs for their own clients. While there are scores of freelancers available (probably many in your own city), there are some emerging, and very powerful, online services that are setup specifically for designers seeking to outsource client projects.
