image thumb13 My.Foliotek Online Portfolio Creation Tool, Special Promo Discount For Startup Meme Readers!

There is definitely a need for someone to showcase their work online in a neat portfolio, one that is easy to access and looks professional enough. One can create an online resume or send one out as a hard copy but it isn’t as effective. I mean I can’t describe all my work in a resume and make life hell for the prospective employer to read. And with the modern tools available, it is totally pointless (read stupid) to carry the bulk of your portfolio.

Enter My.Foliotek an electronic portfolio creation tool that allows individuals to showcase themselves in ways a resume cannot.This can help them land that first job, further their professional career or help them get to the next level in the higher education process.  My.Foliotek does this by giving you a central place to store files and the ability to present them in a meaningful way to viewers.

Just like any social network it is a way to connect with people and tools that are more academic in nature, allowing members to post their own blog or participate in forums all focused around the successful implementation of educational technology.

image thumb9 OpenNearMe: Know What Is Open Near You And Avoid The Hassle

I think the worst thing to happen is that you step out of your house to buy something and all you get to see is a huge Closed sign slapped on the door. You always have the phone to call up and check before you leave, but is there any other smarter way? I mean you can’t just call up all super stores one by one and with the Web so evolved, one would rather resort to using the Internet for such needs.

OpenNearMe is a new startup that resolves the same issue. It simply indexes all the markets, stores, eating places, in short everything within its database and lets you know what place near you is open. It saves time, listing only places that are nearby on a neat map so that you are also able to make a better decision on selecting the nearest to your location.

I sort of agree with the pictorial definition of the Web Developers and Web Designers. Though there have been instances when things have been the other way round for each of them.

Are you a Web Designer or a Developer? What are your opinions about the two?

image thumb39 Wrttn.Me Brings Notepad To The Web: Amateur And Aspiring Bloggers Might Love This One

I bet many of us still use the Notepad that comes loaded with our Microsoft Windows, don’t you? I state that because I have seen many developers use that to write codes because it doesn’t pollute the text area with grammar and spellings, which is pretty annoying. But since everything is moving to the clouds. why not the notepad? This is the same reason why Wrttn.me comes in, with a little bit of extra features.

The best thing this startup gives a user is that you can design your own notepad, it isn’t about simply typing in text. Wrttn lets you create custom CSS Styles as well as incorporate marking types like HTML5 or Markdown, etc. Or it can be just your simple text. I was just exploring Wrttn and figured out it can actually help you in a lot of ways, primarily for those aspiring bloggers and writers who are still confused on what platform to use for blogging? I wont actually call it a platform, but you can definitely use it for the purpose of sharing your thoughts, writings, even videos to share with the online community with Wrttn. The links for these note can be easily placed across social networks and recommendation engines like Facebook, Twitter, Digg, Reddit, etc.
