Coolest Technologies Demoed at Web 2.0 - No. 4 OpenACircle

By Clint Boulton  |  Posted 2008-05-01 Print this article Print

A collaborative platform for small businesses, OpenACircle essentially provides a private meeting room for up to 12 members. Participants can e-mail each other, post and share documents, and leverage audio and videoconferencing applications for multimedia meetings from PCs or smart phones. Cisco WebEx Connect, IBM Lotus Sametime and other apps do this, but not for free.

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?
