Export.ly – Export Your Twitter Contacts

  • February 10, 2011

Export.lyA traditional point of contention when it comes to the Social Web is the limited control or ownership that people have over the data that they upload. If you think about neither Twitter nor Facebook come with a button that automatically lets you have all your data exported from the service and stored in your HD.

That is slowly changing, though. Services like the one under review right now prove it, as Export.ly lets anybody have an excel or CSV file with all his Twitter contacts generated and downloaded straight to his computer.

The uses people will have for such a file will obviously be different from one individual to the other, but one that quickly springs to mind is employing it to promote any product. That is a ready association, really – is there anything that makes for faster marketing reference than an Excel or a CSV file? And there is no denying the power a service such as Export.ly can have for keeping an ordered backup or all the contacts that you have in your Social Web, either for personal or professional reasons.

GenealogySearch.org – The Easy Way To Ancestors

  • June 17, 2008

GenealogySearch.orgThere’s really nothing else in this site, other than basically all the resources you might need to research your genealogy online sorted out by country (it lists only some English-speaking countries, though). A list of recommended sites is presented, briefly noting what you can expect to find in each of them, like whether the sites present maps, surname databases, or maybe record transcriptions.

I’m all in favor of directories, and even enthusiast about sites like this one, which are nothing but a cluster of links of interest, but a bit of orientation could be welcome and useful for people who are only starting to research their ancestors using this web. For instance, I reckon information on how thorough the databases are could be great time-savers, or if that information is not available, a good idea could be to point users to where to start searching. Explore the ‘Free Stuff’ area to discover forms and charts, download clipart or even census worksheets, as in spreadsheets with the same columns as historical census from different countries which let you copy and keep track of information without mastering Excel.

Vertex42.com – Excel Spreadsheets Templates

  • February 16, 2008

Vertex42.comFor MS Office hardcore fans, Vertex42.com is a good place to hang out: a collection of Excel Spreadsheets Templates to keep track and calculate anything, from calendars and debt-reduction plans to home budget planners and a wedding checklist, here’s premade charts for everything.

The templates come in 97-2003 version, which is quite good news for those who have not uploaded to the 2007 version of the suite, and keep having problems to open files. Needless to say, the site is very carefully organized into categories into which downloads fall, like Monte Carlo simulations, dashboards, amortization charts, fun and games, etc. Most of the templates are free to download, however extremely complex ones are charged a small fee. Other goodies this site has a offer are the keyboard shortcuts section, accompanied by a detailed argumentation as to why working with your keyboard is so much better than constantly switching to your mouse (I didn’t think anybody needed to be alerted about this anymore, but if the note’s there is because there probably still is a large amount of people who haven’t noticed).
