Social Networks and Nifty Online Tools


I’m always on the lookout for new tools to help me get organized (while being careful not to fall into “tool churn” and the mental trap that a new tool will “solve” things).  So, there is a balance between trying new things and pruning those which are not bringing value.
I’ve been surprised to find myself using stumbleupon almost every day.  I do sometimes stumble upon something cool that I would never have found otherwise.
I always went from not getting twitter six months ago to using the service throughout the day.
The native Producteev app has been killer for my to do lists over the last month or so.
I use Spotify almost continually for music. (with last.fm keeping track of everything for me).
New this week: penzu (a nice online journal) and fleetly (a game layer over fitness).  Time will tell if either of those stick and bring me daily value.
I’m always open to suggestions.
