Cyberslacking tools on-line

So what is cyberslacking ? Cyberslacking meaning? Or definition?

It is a new form of goldbricking, which in in today’s terms, refers to staff who use their work internet access for personal reasons while maintaining the appearance of working. – That is what wikipedia says.
In current world everything changes so now this kind of action while beeing in bureu is called cyberslacking (sometimes also cyberloafing or cyberbludging).
Speaking shortly people doin it, instead of working properly, tend to work while they are playing or browsing some sites – forums, portals, community services etc.

Well, thats life. Owners of companies try to stop such activities and make you work. Hopefully we come with this post, thats will give you few cyberslacking tools so you can work less and have more entertaiment at work.
Speaking shortly we will tell You what to do, to skip some limitations on your computer that boss made or the IT staff.

For starters some most popular sites might be blocked. That is easy to skip, just use proxy. I suggest this one for now: http://ProxBrowse.com
It is pretty new, and works stabile for now. If not search for some others – there is a lot of this stuff online. Watch out tho, most block graphic and scripts so many sites may not work properly.

Lets get into more special things tho, proxy is obvious for all slackers!

http://www.meebo.com/ is a decent spot that lets you log in to all your favorite communicator networks without any installs. Now even with blocked computer or ports for such services you can talk to people all day long!

http://www.unzip.co.nr/ this tool is decent. If you get any .zip .rar or whatever files to have fun with [for example with ebooks] but cant unpack them nor install winrar.. Just use this site and it will do it for you. Fast, free and simple. Extract .zip .rar online

http://Updating.me this is a simple service that allows you to update your status on multiple sites from one place, speaking shortly all your community services may have its HQ here.. then you can allow people to see you are online and cyberslacking ready!

http://FeedMyInbox.com lets you get all your favorites sites RSS to be sent on your email. Then even if you cant browse sites at work you will be reading news on email. Also it will look like you are emailing with clients hard. Thats just decent.

http://WebToMail.co.cc thats great thing if proxy doesn`t work. Simply enter urls of sites you want to read, and service will send them to you on email! Typing in urls also takes some time – so you have less time for working then. Good one! Email websites to yourself.

Speaking of email. I do not suggest using your e-mail from work, use gmail. It is decent for slacking. Get account here. http://www.gmail.com.
Gmail has messanger inside so you can chat to people, gmail allows you to open .doc .pdf documents in browser so nobody sees what you have there and then.. You can simple read ebooks all day long. Isnt that cool?
Just send yourself each morning big .zip of books, unpack them with tool we spoke of here and open with gmail.
There is also some usefull addons/pluing for gmail that will let you cyberslack easier and faster!
Check this gmail plugins:

http://www.getgspace.com/ is a firefox addon that turns your Gmail account into powerful online storage tool. Now you can upload there stuff that you downloaded like movies etc.
http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/8450 complete integration of GReader into Gmail, speaking shortly helps to slack as hell!
http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/7429 makes Gmail, Google Docs and GCale pages and their intra-links to open by https aka secure connection. Speaking shortly admin of your network even while monitoring you, wont be able to see anything. Thats fun!

Okay enjoy your time in work! If You know more nice tools, leave comments.

Lively Google – death of Second Life ?

Well i never been fan of those kinds of things. I remember when around 97 when irc was main place to talk with people Microsoft tried to make ‘Live’ version of it with WinChat. You could make Your own comic there, and all people speaking were characters You choosen. Anyways, time passed and now we are back. I hear more and more about ideas of customizing and making internet a 3d world that u can walk on and penetrate.

Second Life is a big hit in the world. People from various countries use the service every day and it gains more and more popularity. Our favoorite Google cant be worse, so also decided to make their own customize live thinge. The thing is called “Lively“.

SO how does Google Lively work? You make ur own rooms, add avatars and go through them to meet people. The option is we can make our own world and insert it to our website so everybody who views it can enter the world we made. At the moment this works under new IE and Firefox other web browsers are not supportign the plugin yet.

“It’s integrated with the Internet. It’s not an alternate destination,” said Niniane Wang, Google’s engineering manager for the project. “Our intention is to add to your existing life.”

Integration with the ordinary Internet takes several forms. For one thing, you can pipe in content hosted elsewhere on the Internet, including photos or videos. For another, you can embed your Lively area into your blog or, using widgets Google has written, on Facebook Web pages now and MySpace pages later. And you can e-mail your friends a normal Web address to get them to join.

With Lively, you can set up you own online spaces–rooms, grassy meadows, desert islands, or, in the demo version I tried, simulated Silicon Valley office parks. You can change the clothing or form of your avatar (that’s your online incarnation, for those of you who missed the Second Life hype). And of course you can chat, do backflips, shake hands, and give high-fives.

The idea is to bring a better social dimension to online interaction, Wang said–something more sophisticated for expressing oneself than an emoticon on an instant-messenger status line.

As usual with Google the technology is free and concurent for others. We will see if Second Life survives

And for the end, something about Google. What do u think? Of Google Master Plan of taking over the world?

Ah and what is a blogging tip here? Not only u make your blog more 2.0, u can also chat to your viewers and it is possible to put links to websites on things inside rooms. Maybe thats new way of SEO?
