Coda – A Doc As Powerful As an APP

Coda – A Doc As Powerful As an APP
https://coda.io/

Coda is a new doc that grows with your ideas. People have made Coda docs that do everything from launch products, to scale small businesses, to help them study for tests. Their journey started with an observation. While the world runs on documents and spreadsheets, why haven’t they changed in over 40 years? They made it their mission to rip the document down to the studs, and build a new set of building blocks that would empower people to make docs as powerful as apps.

Station – One App To Rule Them All
https://getstation.com/

Station is the one app to rule them all: a platform that unifies all your web tools in a a neat & permanent interface, allowing you to be 10x more productive at work. rowsers have evolved to become the central way we do pretty much anything: shopping, scheduling, invoicing, monitoring, calling, texting, reading, watching, listening, writing, sharing: you name it. Along the way, as millions of humans were shifting to the browser as their main work tool, it started to show some weaknesses. Today, we spend 90% of our working hours in web applications, but it’s getting hard to stay focused: our natural impulse to open a new tab and get distracted needs to be tamed.

SketchBoard.io – Creative Team Sketching and Diagramming on an Endless Online Whiteboard

SketchBoard.io – Creative Team Sketching and Diagramming on an Endless Online Whiteboard
https://sketchboard.io/

There’s no denying that our work had changed. We no longer work from a single location. We work from the office, from home, from co-working spaces and cafés, from nearshore and offshore development centres, and on a pinch we might even work on the road. We need new tools to ensure our teams can keep being productive and creative in this new hybrid world. Remote work shouldn’t need to be isolating. Team members should get ways to collaborate visually, and they should get to do it in real time, to help solve complex tasks, independently of their location. Sketchboard focuses on rough look and feel to unofficially let teams to co-create their visual thoughts using structural sketching, whether those are sketch diagrams, freehand drafting, images (photos), clean text and comment boxes that work like real-time chat boxes where team members can take stock and offer each other feedback.

Competitive Intelligence – A Selective Resource Guide – Updated December 2018

Competitive Intelligence – A Selective Resource Guide – Updated December 2018
https://www.llrx.com/archives/subject/competitive-intelligence-a-selective-resource-guide/

he accuracy and reliability of data, information, and research published on websites – whether they are hosted by federal, state and local government, corporations, academe, scholarly groups, news organizations, advocacy and professional associations, as well as individual, is subject to continuous review and evaluation to establish its accuracy, reliability and usefulness specific to the areas that pertain to your specific work. The requirements of many faceted work product, deliverables, assignments, publications, reports and specialized expert services demand that we in essence continually, rapidly, and effectively boil the vast ocean of knowledge that is in a continuous state of change. 2018 highlighted additional obstacles to researchers with the advancement of efforts to brand legitimate reporting, news and research resources as “fake” in an effort to marginalize, ring fence and demean publishers, journalists and researchers whose writing and work diverged from that of a prevailing force in American politics. As expert researchers, the clarion call of “fake news” heightened these challenges to our work, but also gave us opportunities to improve and expand critical skills and knowledge across a comprehensive range of sources. Our work is often time sensitive and yet it requires that we continuously practice effective examination of a broad and deep spectrum of information – to establish actionable facts. This work includes cross-checking data and routinely performing due diligence reviews on sources and publications which we cite and from which we source our operational work product. More than ever perhaps the Internet is a dynamic ecosystem – sites often change URLs, the subject matter, focus and perspective may be impacted for reasons that are financial, political or even personal, and ownership of sites may change, resulting in dramatic changes to the quality and reliability of a site’s content. With increasing frequency, sites go offline or merge/are subsumed into other sites, with little or no notification to users, even if they are subscription based. New sites and services pop up, and researchers are challenged to make quick determinations as to their value. However, we have just so many hours in our work day to identify and efficiently use tools and resources that support our ability to accurately meet the requirements of our customers, users, patrons, and readers. This guide remains focused on the requirements of multi-disciplinary subject matter researchers, a group of which I am a dedicated and a long standing member. This latest version of the guide includes dozens of updated links, deletion of sites that no longer exist , as well as numerous new, value added content. For 22 years, LLRX has not changed its URL and the webzine remains an independent, non-affiliated, one woman owned and edited publication. Please refer to this guide as a reliable resource on which you may depend and to which you will often refer as you engage in research, knowledge discovery, managing knowledge services, as well as an reliable resource for teaching and training programs. As always, I appreciate your suggestions to include additional sites and sources in this guide. Thank you – and may your research always shine light on the facts, regardless of any efforts to bury, obscure and diminish them. This will be added to Reference Resources Subject Tracer™.
