Notes and Links from "Fantastic Freebies for Everyone"

We had a great turn out for this program. It was a fun night as we explored all the stuff that you can do or find on the Web for free.

We spent some time talking about the concept of Web 2.0 and then we launched right in to demonstrating 13 of our favorite freebies.

A PDF of our slideshow (which will give you the addresses for all the sites we visited and talked about) can be found on the Princeton Public Library's Technology Center web page.

Our audience asked lots of great questions and the discussion was fun. One of the questions asked was in regards to free software that keeps track of passwords. After a bit of research we have found RoboForm -- there is a free download for personal use and it comes highly recommended by several reliable sources. Try it out and let us know what you think!

If you want to learn more about Web 2.0 and what it can do for you, then watch this blog for an announcement as I am planning to have Sophie Brookover and Pete Bromberg come in the fall to give a tech talk devoted to this topic and it should be great.

This was a great talk. I hope you will do this again with different sites and freebies. I also learned about Web 2.0 as bonus... thanks.

I learned a lot at this session. I have shared the slides with a few friends. Can you repeat it?

I couldn't make the talk. Thanks for posting the slides. The html to pdf generator is very handy and I also like TaDa Lists. I am little leary of the CCleaner program. Are you sure it is safe?
