Categories: Announcements, Just Stuff :-)
After months (years?) of seeing people asking "what tools do you use for" authoring/editing/indexing/graphics and so on, JTF Associates is pleased to announce TechComm Toolbox.
TCT provides a searchable database of entries organized by categories and alphabetically. And everyone is welcome to submit entries for tools not currently listed.
In addition, consultants and trainers are welcome to submit themselves.
All tools are listed for no charge, with the company name and a link to the appropriate website page. Companies can advertise on TCT by adding blurbs, logos, or both to their listing. In addition, sponsored ads are available on each page.

So over at "What Would Dad Say", GL Hoffman (author of Dig Your Job: Keep it or Find a New One) has asked readers to post their six-word resumes. By 1 January 2009.
With no time to waste, here's mine:
Connecting social media and user assistance. (I think it could have more "punch"...I'll have to work on that.)
(My personal six-word meme is Playing the hand I was dealt.)
What are your six-word memes?
We try to get to Boston's First Night every year, at least for a couple of hours. So every year, I go to their website to see what's new...
(I don't remember seeing the blog in previous years, but the website has undergone a complete update. It's much nicer than what I remember and much better organized. My only complaint is that you have to use Back from the blog to return to the main site. And be sure to click First Night 2009 in the upper left to get to this year's information.)
And if you're going to First Night, let me know! Maybe we can meet up somewhere :-)
Seth Godin's Tribes: We Need You to Lead Us was released in October, but way before that, he created a Ning network called Triiibes, where those interested in the concept could meet and talk and even work together.
The Q&A is the second project that the tribe worked on and I'm happy to say that I was part of it. Thanks to Megan Elizabeth Morris, who may have gone without sleep that weekend but made sure we finished by deadline, and to the other 150+ people who donated their time and efforts. Even though most of my stuff was at the end (editing), it was great working with everyone. It's a wonderful feeling when a project like this comes together.
Seth announced the ebook's release this morning on his blog.
 The online group is Triiibes because a) Seth found that tribes.com was already taken and b) it takes a minimum of three people to make a tribe.
Guy Kawasaki (website and blog) formally announced Alltop in March 2008. Alltop is a "news aggregation site"...that is, it provides links to top stories for a number of popular topics. The main page contains the topic links (about 150...there were 40 when it started) and each link contains specific links for each topic organized by source.
So if you're looking for up-to-date information that isn't pushed to your system (ala RSS feeds) but is there when you need it, visit Alltop today. Set a timer or you'll be there for awhile ;-).
