There is a HUGE amount of buzz around social networks and the potential for use.  Today, I present NING a tool that allows you to create your very own social network.  Within your new network users can post blogs, pictures, and messages on forums.  You can also make your social network private or allow outsiders to join.  How can this be used?  Huge organizations have paid BIG bucks to create enterprise social networks.  Communicate with employees in a better (and more fun) way.  Create a family social network and connect with people all over the globe.

FREE Music

November 18, 2008

I know, I know….there isn’t really anything new about…ahem…free music.  But combine free with legal and you’ve got something!  Better Propoganda is an interactive online music magazine that profiles artists from independent and major labels.  The best part about it is that they offer free and legal downloads.  Find an artist that you like and listen to similar music or listen to a contributing editor’s playlist to discover new gems. If you like it, download it.  It’s that simple.  Impress the biggest music snobs you know with your newfound playlists.
