Trying out "new" web apps

I'm giving Rojo a spin right now.

I transfered all my feeds from Bloglines yesterday and, after an initial feeling that the app was bloated, I must say I quite like it. The tagging is well-implemented, and for some reason I feel I can scan my new stories much faster here than in Bloglines. The only glaring ommission is a notifier!

I've also signed up for 30 Boxes, and have been playing with the really cool natural language event input system. Once you get used to the forced AM / PM syntax, it's quite nice. The only thing I'm missing here is a way to import an iCal export (.ics).

Euro IA Summit 2005 report

While my notes are collecting dust on my hard drive, someone else finally got around to writing up a report of last year's European IA Summit. As James Kalbach writes in his article on Boxes and Arrows:
"We should be intensely interested in documenting these summits… Does IA really want to deliver a wheelbarrow of PowerPoint slides in ten years as the body of its work?"
A good overview of a memorable event then. I'm already looking forward to the next one.
