Digest of Internet Information, Groups and Other Stuff

The possibilities for collaboration with Web 2.0 tools (Google Apps, Twitter, Ning, blogs, wikis, shared bookmarks, etc.) are immense. I am a huge fan of shared bookmarks and recently discovered this great collaborative tool called Diigo.
Diigo allows users to annotate, archive, organize, and share webpages. As users read on the web, instead of just bookmarking, they can highlight portions of webpages that are of particular interest to them. They can also attach sticky notes to specific parts of webpages. The Diigo highlights and sticky notes are persistent in the sense that whenever a user returns to a webpage's URL, they will see their highlights and sticky notes superimposed on the original webpage, similar to if they highlighted or wrote on a book.
These annotations are available regardless of the computer used. Access can be gained through logging into the Diigo website or shared with friends by using hyperlinks. The best part—it’s free!
