yef-logoTo compliment an earlier social media post, here are some ways to organize all the different tools available to us today as current and future entrepreneurs, educators, and everyone in between.  As we like to call this post, “HOW TO KEEP YOUR BRAIN FROM EXPLODING.” Below are a few resources you might find useful in this wired world in which we live:

1. In Google Reader – Star article at top left corner to save for later

2. Zotero – Good for academic research and tracking citations

3. Linked in Toolbar for Firefox

4. Yoonoo and Digsby – Access to Facebook, Twitter, etc. all at one place

5. RescueTime – Analyzes your internet usage each day. You can set timers, goals, alarms.

6. Organize yourself/make the world smaller – With tools like StumbleUpon (and other social bookmarking tools like, e.g., del.icio.us) as well as Twitter search.

7. (YEF Blog Author added this) Use www.Alltop.com to see blogs by area of interest.

SUGGESTED EXERCISE:

Ask students, staff, a business leadership group: How to they organize their communciations, social networks, and information to prevent information overload?

Good luck, and happy surfing/tweeting/blogging/etc.
