No. 6 Vyew

Vyew is a Web-based collaboration and conferencing platform that allows users to upload and annotate files, take screen captures, white-board and use plug-ins to create content. The software also boasts live conferencing sessions via text chat, Webcam and VOIP (voice over IP). For example, Vyew can allow medical professionals to access a shared work space containing lab results, X-rays, audio and video scans to collaboratively diagnose an illness.

The Web 2.0 Expo is traditionally a breeding ground for new technology demonstrations and this year's event in San Francisco was no exception. Here are six of the more memorable technologies, most of which are social and collaborative in nature, demonstrated on the Moscone West show floor April 23 through April 25. You'll notice half of them are online collaboration tools that would look great as part of larger feature sets at Cisco Systems, IBM or Microsoft, which begs the question: Which will remain independent one year from now?
