Share Folders in Google Docs

Google Docs has a new interface and an important new feature: sharing folders. You can now share folders with your contacts and even make some of your folders public. If you allow anyone to view or edit a folder, Google generates a publicly accessible URL for a page that lists all the files from your folder.”When you share a folder, the new permissions are pushed to all sub-folders and docs within the folder. Normally this happens quickly, but occasionally, it could take a couple of minutes,” explains Google.

Another change is that Google Docs has a Flash uploader that lets you upload multiple files at a time and to place the files in a folder.

My Filter For News Is Not A Robot

A lot of people ask me how and what aggregators I use to sift through the news to find the “good stuff”, otherwise known as tech news outside the bubble of Twitter and Facebook. Many people are surprised by my answer, I don’t use filters or fancy aggregation services that are supposed to magically find me relevant news, rather, I use the best filter of all, everyone else.

If you are an aggregation nut you probably already use the best RSS reader out on the market, Google Reader (if not, go use it). If you do, then you are aware of its sharing capabilities and that you can follow people who are sharing articles within Google Reader. Use this to your advantage. There are many people who are excellent at going through blog feeds and sharing great tech news that is outside the bubble.

Here’s a good start to finding great tech content without all the work:

Mahendra: http://www.google.com/profiles/mahendrap

Louis Gray: http://www.google.com/profiles/louisgray

Mark Nielsen: http://www.google.com/profiles/manielse

Ziad “Zee” M Kane: http://www.google.com/profiles/zeedotme

Tac Anderson: http://www.google.com/profiles/tacanderson

All these people I mentioned above are avid Google Reader sharers who are great at finding tech content that is mostly outside the bubble. So far, no automated aggregator can even come close that list.

A good list there. I have subscribed to all of them and they do share some great tech/social media articles.
