Technically Speaking All in on IT

From InformationWeek: “Tahiti places a small toolbar icon labeled "Work with Me" in the toolbars of Office applications that when clicked, launches Tahiti. In the current version, when a Word document is being worked on collaboratively, changes are tracked in real time and each change is marked with the name of the user who made the change. This update tracking capability doesn't appear to carry over to other apps like Excel and Powerpoint. However, the program also uses what Microsoft calls "personal mouse pointers" to see how others are using their mouse during the session. Along with Office documents, the Tahiti taskbar lets people share any application on their desktops.”

This is a new desktop information sharing application on a small scale. You can share parts of apps, your desktop or “handouts” with a group of up to 15 Internet connected users in real time. In some instances the full enterprise technology like LCS or Groove is overkill. This smaller and more elegant solution can fit the bill nicely for smaller groups. The website contains a ton of information but downloads are currently suspended until the beta is expanded. You can also find more information on Eileen Brown’s blog.
