This is for all you Twitter skeptics: What I learned on Twitter today

Here's a listing of cool things I learned and shared in about 30 minutes on Twitter:(and this is without Mashable's feeds down??for some reason) is a website where you upload your PDF form and link to it so other people can fill it out and sign it online. No software is needed. Any PDF form can be used, even if it's not "interactive", so you can get started right away. You can even invite a group to fill out your forms and track the results. Anyone that collects signatures or filled out forms will find to be a valuable time-saving resource. (Phil Bradley, librarian)

VUVOX - slideshows, photo, video and music sharing. Use the Collage option to quickly produce dynamic interactive panoramas with hot-spots. Use Studio to build a personalized media presentation... and, place it in your Collage. Use Express to build presentations with dynamic content from RSS feeds and online albums.(Phil Bradley, librarian)

WatchKnow Videos: all the best free educational videos made for children, and making them findable and watchable on one website. Millions of great short videos, and other watchable media, explaining every topic taught in schools, in every major language on Earth ( a goal), usefully categorized according to subject, education level, and placed in the order in which topics are typically taught. (Tom Whitby, Professor of Education in Secondary English.)
