Blog: Technology As An Organizing Tool
Yahoo! I'm Organized!

They say that the best things in life are free. This may not always be true, but of all the free stuff available on the Internet, I haven't found a company with more to offer than Yahoo!

The email account has a powerful junk filter, and you can easily set up your own filters so that certain types of messages (such as group messages or newsletters) go into their own folders.

In the address book, you can assign categories to your contacts and keep track of both home and work contact information, and there's a section for your own notes. You can also enter birthdays and anniversaries and receive email reminders of these events.

You can create a calendar and keep it private, public, or visible only to people you specify, and you can even give certain people the ability to edit it (very handy if you want your Virtual Assistant to schedule appointments on your behalf). You can also add tasks and assign them a priority and due date.

I've long been a fan of Yahoo! Bookmarks, especially when used with the Yahoo! Toolbar. It's so easy to add and organize websites of interest, and like all the Yahoo! tools, you can access them from any computer with Internet access.

Flickr is the photo application that lets you upload your digital photos, again with the option of keeping them private, making them public, or sharing them only with people designated as friends or family. They can be organized into online photo albums, and not only can you add captions, but people viewing them can add their own comments.

Launch is the music application that lets you create your own radio station by indicating the types of music you like. As you listen, you can rate each song, artist, and album so the music played becomes more and more tailored to your preferences.

There are so many features that you really need to check it out for yourself and find the ones that are most useful (or fun) for you.
