As soon as the Google Docs page opened, Iintuitively understood how to use it. Co-workers have offered to work with me this way, why did I not give it a try then? Anyway, it seems like a pretty simple way to track the development of collaborative documents. I also took the opportunity to activate my account with NetFiles. I have received files from NetFiles, but never uploaded them. Now that I am activated, I feel perfectly able to use this tool. I wonder whether Google Docs accomplishes the goal of NetFiles, too, by posting files, in addition to co-developing files with others? If Google Docs covers both needs, why would I need NetFiles?
Regarding the list tools, Nozbe, etc., I wasn't sure if I wanted to keep lists online. Often my reminders are one or two items long, not really worth a whole online list. Alternately, if I used a PDA, I could see managing my lists online, then accessing them through the handheld. Hmmm, another reason to hope for a PDA from Santa...
The Zamzar, Picknik, Doodle, and other tools look great and managable. I hope I remember to use them when the time comes! I've bookmarked them all so I remember where to find them.
Why do these tools seem overwhelming and complicated before I give them a try? Guess I really am a digital immigrant, not a digital native. I really appreciate the little video tours that many of the sites offer. I am an auditory learner, so having someone explain to me what a site's about helps a lot!
