This is really cool. Adobe has put together some really nice collaboration online tools, such as Buzzword, ConnectNow, Create PDF, Share, and My Files. Creating your own account is free. I think I will need to plan on using these tools more and more. The interfaces are really good looking and are based on Flex.

My Tech Needs

I have started a new blog to better describe what my current technology needs are for my own personal projects. I like the wordpress format for blogs because you can more readily see other people's comments. My new blog will contain any solution which I am looking for and any suggestions from my readers. As I put together my personal projects, I often run into nice things to have but which I cannot locate or do not yet exist. Perhaps you can provide me one of these solutions and we can mutually profit.
