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):
Feedstripes lets you easily create online “magazines” composed of articles on your favorite topics, and you can easily save them for future reading, too. It has a nice interface. I’m adding it to The Best Sites For Creating Personalized “Newspapers” Online.
Socl is a very nice and easy place to create simple online content. It would be perfect for student; HOWEVER, you can only sign-in with a Microsoft account or with Facebook. It would certainly be nice if people could just register by email — their restrictive registering process is going to make it less likely students will use it.
Socl is part of Microsoft’s Fuse Labs, which looks like the place where they try out new tools and ideas. Montage is another one of their projects. It lets you create your own online magazine. Docs, a place to create collaborative documents, is another too. They, also, have that same registration problem.
Songcrate is a new site that lets you create video song playlists. I’m adding it to Not “The Best,” But “A List” Of Music Sites.
