Collaborating in the Cloud

IMG_7750My first session at MLA,  Collaborating in the Cloud by Robin, I’d heard so much about it I had to see it for myself.

definition of collaborating from wikipedia

adds distance option & time option across country or across continent

collaboration isnt just for others but also allows you to back up your own documents

peer networking don’t have to deal with hierarchies


  • social calenders

  • social networking sites

  • social bookmarking

  • social desktops

  • social wikis

  • social documents

  • groupware

bad thing about the cloud is that all info is outside the company firewall might not be so secure
