Location, location, location by Dr. Doll

I am here on the last day of CAC, watching Dr. Doll present. For me this is the highlight of the week. I always learn something new and leave feeling excited and motivated. Here are my notes. He talks fast, so if something below doesn't make sense, please let me know!

The grab bag -random topics

JQuery mobile - tool to build mobile apps with HTML

Bit.ly - link shortening tool, interview with one of their developer about privacy and analytic data. They will not sell data. Ly at the end of their name means their site is hosted in Libya. Add a + at the end of a bit.ly address and you can see the analytic data for access through the bolt.ly URL.

JotForm and Dropbox - create a form which will automatically send a file to your Dropbox

Slideshare - start a meeting through zip cast using your already uploaded PowerPoint. VoIP, chat, broadcast with Twitter or Facebook all with one click.
