Weekend Favs for July Twelve

By John Jantsch

rocksI’ve added a weekend post routine that I hope you enjoy. Each weekend I write a post that features 3-4 things I read during the week that I found interesting. Generally speaking it won’t involve much analysis and may range widely in topic. (Flickr image included here is also fav image of the week)


Good stuff I ran across this week

  • Aardvark – new service that allows you to ask questions and get answers from either a network of people you know, such as Facebook friends, or other aardvark subscribers. Answers come via IM in about five minutes. Interesting way to get fast information.
  • Audio Boo – not sure what the name’s about, but this is a nice tool for posting quick audio bits to twitter or facebook. You download an iPhone app and then record and upload your audio. You can use a photo from your phone as well. The service then takes your location and other info you give it and creates a post on AudioBoo, but also tweets and updates your Facebook status if you like. Nice way to do audio on the fly. Here’s a sample one I did.
  • Google Squared – this is a tool that’s part of the Google Labs for now, but it hints at their desire to integrate some apps with search to give results that are more intent driven. You put in a search phrase and it gives you results in a spreadsheet format. It’s still early on but I think this approach has some nice potential for market research. Here’s a square for mountains in Colorado
