Traveling Geeks’ favorite online power tools
August 24th, 2009

The Traveling Geeks’ tour of the UK this summer was one of the most intense junkets I’ve ever been sucked into. Among other things, I gave my first major talk at Reboot Britain about 21st Century Literacies, and JD Lasica captured a 6 minute interview with me about the same subject. One of the nice side-projects is JD’s survey of the geeks about our favorite productivity tools. Check out Coolest power tools of some top geeks:
