In yet another attempt to get at the enormous backlog I have of sites worth sharing, I’ve recently begin a regular feature called “The Week In Web 2.0.” It’ll be a short compilation of new decent sites that are worth noting, but maybe not necessarily worth a separate post and generally — though not always — not worthy of being on a “The Best…” list (let me know if you think I’m wrong in my assessment, though):

TechCrunch calls Bunkr a “PowerPoint Killer,” but I wouldn’t agree. It does have an attractive interface and an innovative way to collect potential images for inclusion in a presentation (a bookmarklet). However, the ease of their image collection doesn’t make-up for the fact that it doesn’t make it easy to include attribution (unless I missed that), plus it costs $3 per month to use (you do get two free presentations before you have to pay). I’ll pass on adding it to The Best Ways To Create Online Slideshows.

4 Sites for Groups to Easily Share Photos from One Event is a useful post from Make Use Of. I’m adding it to The Best Web Applications That Lets Multiple People Upload Their Photos To One Place.

I’m adding Pumpic to the same list, and you can read more about it at TechCrunch.

Soundice is yet another site that lets you create musical playlists for free. I’m adding it to Not “The Best,” But “A List” Of Music Sites.

CVS Intellect looks like a nice site where students can create their resumes. I’m adding it to The Best Places For Students To Write Their Resumes.

It doesn’t quite fit here, but Bing recently announced a program that lets schools sign-up for ad-free Bing search at their sites.
