Have you seen ?
This seems to me like a sort of SuprGlu: a completely customizable starting page, simply for yourself.
I will try this one out, for sure. The company is based in France, BTW.
I came across Netvibes by courtesy of a weblog at the Open University of the UK; (he, didn't they recently tell us that they are have chosen Moodle as their VLE of the future?).

IBM shows for the enterprise, and more

This came up today as one of the most popular reads on, tagged with 'folksonomy'. It's a long item on what IBM is doing. Very interesting for all the people interested in social software and the likes.

The digital divide sitting right next to you. Web 2.0 dreamworld & Web 0.75 realworld

Leigh Blackall, whose weblog I've been reading for some months now, just put a nice article about the long way we still have to go.
Leigh refers to an excellent article by Alan Levine, where he states that "One of my peeves is the pervasive use of email as a sole communication means. What I am referring to as almost daily, there are 4 or 5 fully formatted HTML, graphic laden emails about various events and programs in our college system, and there is no corresponding related information on our colleges' web sites. That means the only content "repository" is the inbox, which has no legacy record, no memory, no search."
Hum, yeah, right. I guess we are doing a little bit better at my University. Yes, I do get a lot of email, but mostly there is a URL in there where i can find more information. But on the other hand, indeed my content repository sometimes is my inbox.

How to Save the World

Please take the time to read the How to Save the World "The Social Networking Landscape" by Dave Pollard. This is an excellent piece on trying to define what social software is about. Not in a textual way, but in a mindmapping way. I need to do more with mindmapping, that's for sure.

eHub interviews Pierre Stanislas, creator of Atiki

I said it before on this weblog. You really should add this website (or RSS feed) within your attentioncloud whatever (?): eHub by Emily Chang.
"Thanks to Pierre Stanislas, creator of Atiki for this email interview posted October 24, 2005."
