Groove Your Way to Productivity and Javascript on Juice

While I may not be a programmer, I am a tech geek at heart. Technology has always been a gateway for me to reduce laborious tasks and increase communication efficiencies…in other words it helps alleviate my procrastination habits and other nefarious personal productivity holes.

Although Groove.net and Extjs.com are two vastly different applications, they both represent progressive advances in communication abilities and end-user experiences, using the web as a vehicle.

‘Work together and share information with team members — anywhere, anytime, with anyone.’ Groove.net is a Peer-to-Peer (P2P) collaboration software application that evolved out of Lotus Notes. I started using Groove about three years ago, before Microsoft bought it and Ray Ozzie up into the belly of the beast, and I must say it is the most seamless collaborative software program I’ve ever come across.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Instead of spending gobs of cash on hard and software as well as hiring a systems administrator to manage a server based local area network, Groove is an inexpensive, secure, and most importantly an EASY solution for disparately located groups to implement and use to collaborate on projects with.

Anyone can demo Groove free for 30 days…try it out with a colleague, if you are part of a real estate or mortgage ‘Team’ have everyone try it together, you’ll wonder how you got along without it.

 

 

 

 

On a higher tech acumen level, extjs.com is what I call Javascript on Juice. This open source resource provides beautifully clean code that can be implemented into almost any web-based application you can think of.

One of their most ambitious and friggin awsome looking applications is the extjs Desktop, you almost forget that this is inside a web-browser. While some people may try to pass this gorgeous looking code off as their own, extjs openly touts some big dogs who are using their wares: Dow Jones, IndyCar and IBM.

What you are seeing here is a shift in how websites will look, feel and function…wicked cool.
