Librophile – Free and Fee Based Audio Books

April 29, 2010

Librophile – Free and Fee Based Audio Books
http://www.librophile.com/

Librophile.com (beta) provides a simple interface for finding both the free audio books at Librivox.org and the pay books at Audible.com. Their ultimate aim is to provide a one stop shop of all the audio and electronic books out there. Using free tools such as jQuery and jQuery.TOOLS, Librophile offers a simple interface based around scrolling through books in the various archives. You can browse the latest books, search by keywords or choose more broadly by genre. You can often listen to chapters online, download a whole book, play a sample or subscribe using iTunes. Phase 2 of the project will be to extend the site to encompass a greater range of books from other sources.

Amazon Simple Notification Service (Amazon SNS)

Amazon Simple Notification Service (Amazon SNS)
http://aws.amazon.com/sns/?ref_=pe_8050_15058410

Amazon Simple Notification Service (Amazon SNS) is a web service that makes it easy to set up, operate, and send notifications from the cloud. It provides developers with a highly scalable, flexible, and cost-effective capability to publish messages from an application and immediately deliver them to subscribers or other applications. It is designed to make web-scale computing easier for developers. Amazon SNS provides a simple web services interface that can be used to create topics you want to notify applications (or people) about, subscribe clients to these topics, publish messages, and have these messages delivered over clients’ protocol of choice (i.e. HTTP, email, etc.). Amazon SNS delivers notifications to clients using a “push” mechanism that eliminates the need to periodically check or “poll” for new information and updates. Amazon SNS can be leveraged to build highly reliable, event-driven workflows and messaging applications without the need for complex middleware and application management. The potential uses for Amazon SNS include monitoring applications, workflow systems, time-sensitive information updates, mobile applications, and many others. As with all Amazon Web Services, there are no up-front investments required, and you pay only for the resources you use.

Threadbox – Effortless Collaboration

Threadbox – Effortless Collaboration
http://www.threadbox.com/

The real time discussion tracking, file sharing, schedule coordinating, project managing, decision making tool that works right alongside email – and just might replace it. Threadbox is a simple and pragmatic collaboration platform that helps workgroups effortlessly increase productivity by harnessing the group’s conversations, files, tasks, dates, and opinions. Threadbox began in November 2008 when founders Michael Cerda and Ben Dean recognized an opportunity to make collaboration as easy as email and instant messaging, yet as comprehensive as a traditional collaboration service. The end result would improve productivity for small workgroup communication and collaboration. Threadbox initially launched as Cc:Betty at DEMO Spring 2009, and from there grew, nurtured and iterated the platform with a beta customer base throughout 2009. A year later, in Spring 2010, the result of many months of customer and product development yielded Threadbox, the easiest collaboration service ever.

Fwix – Local News and Tools
http://www.fwix.com/

Fwix is a local news site designed to show you the most recent and relevant information in your area. Their mission is to provide people with the best possible news and the tools necessary to spread this news to the people they care about. Fwix’s technology is designed to filter and select news stories that are locally relevant. To accomplish this task, they use a wide array of technologies. Their goal is to develop software that enhances user experience by finding high quality local content. For their data processing, they decided to use the disco project which allows them to quickly process log files, data, and other useful information to present relevant content. Most of their filters are proprietary and written in a myriad of languages. Python is the basis for most of their technology, but there is some Erlang and C in the mix that makes it all happen.
