GroupSites – How Groups Make Things Happen

GroupSites – How Groups Make Things Happen
http://www.groupsite.com/

Some call it Web 2.0, others call it the social web. They call it a change. Blogs, social networks, wiki’s and other recent innovations have transformed the Web and how many of us use it. While these new innovations are clearly powerful, they don’t believe that they’ve adequately empowered people within groups to come together and collectively make things happen. So they have made it their mission to introduce the Groupsite, a new kind of website. Groupsites embody the Web’s evolution into a social/collaborative medium by bringing together the most useful features of traditional websites, discussion forums, listservs, blogs, collaboration software and social networks. With Groupsites, people from a wide range of professional and social groups within companies, communities, non-profits, families and more are now able to instantly and easily communicate, share, network. Best of all, basic Groupsites are free to create and can be setup to be public, completely private and secure, or somewhere in between.

New Zealand Electronic Text Centre
http://www.nzetc.org/

The New Zealand Electronic Text Centre has four aims: a) To create a digital library providing open access to significant New Zealand and Pacific Island texts and materials. This encompasses both digitised heritage material and born-digital resources; b) To effectively partner with other organisations, as a collaborator and service provider, on a variety of digitisation and digital content projects; c) To build a wider community skilled in the use and creation of digital materials through teaching and training activities and by publishing and presenting the results of research; and d) To work at the intersection of computing tools with textual material and investigate how these tools may be used to make new knowledge from our cultural inheritance. Acting on these goals, NZETC is engaged in an ongoing programme of digitisation and hosts an expanding online library. The standards-based collection is delivered through an Open Source framework and offers full and free access to a range of materials in multiple formats for download or online browsing. Today the NZETC collection contains over 2,600 texts (around 65,000 pages) and receives over 10,000 visits each day. This has been added to Research Rdesources Subject Tracer™ Information Blog. This will be added to Academic and Scholar Search Engines and Sources white paper.
