It’s the hybrid book which combined iPhone and an ordinary book.
You can enjoy interactive actions there,
by touching the screen or tipping the book as you read it.

Wallwisher - No log in necessary

This is an online notice board. You create a background then add stickies and move them around to gather and organize your ideas. You are issued a URL even before you start, so you can embed the "wall" in another online doc, app, blog, wiki, etc.... Great ice breaker.

No Future Left Behind


When kids at the Suffern Middle School Tech Club were asked to talk about education and their future, they gave Peggy Sheehy, the SMS media specialist, an earful. Other students heard about the project and joined in. They brainstormed the script and started filming. Listen and learn the bits of wisdom that can be gleaned from the students, if we only dare to ask them.

wiffiti - What if cell phones could write

If you text me - 25622 - and start the message @02420sue, it will post your message on my wiffiti screen which is viewable when I login and view my site. I could project the active site to a screen in a classroom and receive text ideas from students, teachers, etc. Messages are screened by the site. Wiffiti is a start up located in Somerville, MA. Real cool.

Today I noticed my Cluster Map from last year finally had a hit from Africa and South America. 454 hits total for last year. Nice feeling to be so connected, if only this little bit.
