Instant Disposable Collaborative One-Page Publishing with SecretlyMeet.me

Instant Disposable Collaborative One-Page Publishing with SecretlyMeet.me | Web Publishing Tools | Scoop.it

"SecretlyMeet allows to create temporary web sites that exist up to when your browser is open and is connected to the internet. When you close your browser, all is gone."

Robin Good's insight:



SecretlyMeet is a web app which allows you to instantly publish a web one-pager in which to share, post and add any type of content you want. From text, to images, video clips, freehand drawings, embed codes, to any type of file you can post and share anything you want.


You can even post text by speaking into the page.


The page you create lives only until you keep your browser open on it. When you and the other party close the browser the page disappears forever.


To use it you just select a theme, click Start and you re provided immediately with a unique link to your page, that you can share with someone else. Unless someone else joins you on the page, you cannot start editing it.


With SecretlyMeet you have an instant publishing tool that you can use to exchange and collaborate with someone else privately as if it were a multimedia page on which to share any content desired.


The key benefit is that SecretelyMeetMe requires basically zero setup and configuration and you are ready to publish, collaborate and share immediately and leaves no trace of what you have been sharing behind you.


A live text chat window is also available on any SecretlyMeetMe to exchange in real-time with anyone else having access to it.


Free to use.

Going to be thinking about what I could use this for...seems like it could be a great bridge between posting stuff up on an internal, persistent social web and the real time feed from a WebEx/GoToMeeting interface.

Collaborative Community-Based News Curation with NewsPad

Robin Good's insight:


"NewsPad is a web app that helps communities of people collaborate on news articles, even when they don’t see themselves as writers.


It helps people choose a headline, structure their article, and ask others to add material.


The software, which supports real-time collaborative editing and content curation, incorporates the best ideas from Wikipedia, Storify, and online text editors."


"NewsPad is designed for the long tail of interest of participation, a system that works well with stories that are too small for newspapers, where it might take a casual volunteer effort to create any news at all."


Newspad, which is free and open-source, is a project born out of Microsoft Fuse Labs.


Its unique strengths are:


a) easy-to-use and to post structured news content


b) collaborative - you can invite others to contribute


c) easy to distribute across multiple sites


It is an ideal tool for local and hyperlocal news sites as well as for any highly focused community of interest.


Free to use. Open-source.

The Design Editor for Print and Web: Lucidpress

The Design Editor for Print and Web: Lucidpress | Web Publishing Tools | Scoop.it
Robin Good's insight:



Lucidpress is a web app which allows you to design, layout, format and publish most any type of document or publication without needing to buy an expensive software program.


The key advantage of Lucidpress is that it offers one editing environment to prepare both print and digital publications for the web or mobile devices.


Final work can be exported to high quality PDF files, or to JPG, PNG or PDF files for individual pages. 


Lucidpress integrates with Google Drive and it allows to easily import texts, images as well as video clips from YouTube. 


My comment: There is certainly a need for an easy-to-use web-based design environment for pubs of all kinds which Lucidpress attempts to intercepts. The design app is quite powerful and well designed but unless you are a designer you are going to be disappointed with the results. Available templates are few and very old-fashioned. This is probably the area where Lucidpress has the maximum opportunity for improvement. Integrating quality design into the service and non-design customers will do the rest. 



Free to use.

Many thanks!!

This looks really intuitive. A simple interface with stunning results. Would be great for journaists producing updates for tablets, smartphones or email newsletters.
