I’ve been involved in a research project based on web 2.0 technologies in the enterprise. I recently came across an interesting interactive tool by McKinsey Quarterly that gives an interactive comparison of trends.
There are a number of forums that are easy to implement within WordPress. I have installed WordPress Forum Server, which is easy to implement. The process is simple:
1. Download the plugin
3. Configure the settings with categories and groups.
4. Create a page to display the forum on your site
5. Add the following code to the top of the page in the html code:
Welcome Guest, posting in this forum requires registration.

You can add a widget to the sidebar for the forum. When you go to the page that was set up for the forums, you have a tool that allows you to click on the category and add new posts. I always find how technology has evolved, amazing.pl
If you really want to improve your site’s ranking, it is important to understand the behavior visitors to your site follow. A perfect tool for this is Google Analytics. Simple to use, you create a unique code for the site that you are adding the analytics to. Add the script into the end of your html file, or into a plugin tool if your site is built on WordPress, and you will start seeing information usually within 2 days.
Once you install Google Analytics, it is fairly easy to allow access to others. I do this all the time for my clients, so that I can manage the technical aspects, but they can still see the results. The breadth of the information goes fairly deep and gives many views, geolocation information, an more.

pdftohtml is a command line piece of software, which you operate from the command console. Type in the name of the program the pdf file to read and the name of the html file to save. It will create the necessary files and links for you.

Here is a recent portwiture. It is fun to see how these change depending on what you tweet.
When testing, it is important to test on multiple browsers and versions of browsers. Internet Explorer has incredible inconsistencies between versions of the browser. Since IE is the most widely used browser, it is important to test between different versions.
Some tools for testing your web design on different browsers:
I’ve just downloaded the Wild Pockets 3D engine for Firefox. This is a huge advancement. I came out of the 3D modeling and animation world back when a lot of custom/proprietary code was being written and the software only ran on high end Unix workstations. It is amazing to me to see how the industry has evolved. I’m including this fun demo from the Wild Pockets website to show the capabilities of the 3D engine.
I believe this will totally change many online applications, much the way computer games went from InfoComm text only games to the incredible visuals available now in games like World of Warcraft.
This demo requires an ActiveX or Firefox plugin in order to work. I tested it in Google Chrome, but no happiness there. No plugin for Chrome at this time.
