News, views, tips and tricks on Oracle and other fun stuff

Web 2.0, vyew, buzzshout and AJAX

I was reading Remko Mantel blog about Web 2.0 and thought about sharing with you a couple of links. The first is a very cool and useful “Web 2.0” website that offers a free, web-based collaboration tool that provides a feature-rich meeting room with real-time, whiteboard functionality. Features include:

  • Create instant meetings – No client to download or install
  • Annotate, share, and save documents
  • Store your work (25MB free storage)
  • Capture and share screenshots with 1-click
  • Conduct a meeting with up to 20 attendees
  • Upload and share photos from your Flickr!, Yahoo! Photos, or Kodak accounts
  • Create custom photo slideshows with music

Check it out at I have played with it a bit and my first reaction was: Wow!

If you’re wondering what other “Web 2.0” services are available out there on the Net, wonder no more. Just launched, a new (Web 2.0) website,, an online listing and repository of reviews of the hottest new “Web 2.0” companies.

AJAX is a major component in all Web 2.0 website development. Oracle already has a one-stop shop for AJAX development available on OTN.

    Hi Eddie,

    Thank you for your post on Vyew a while ago. We hope that you enjoy the features that Vyew has. We would like to inform you that Vyew 2.0 is going to be released in mid-July.

    Our up coming release 2.0 has some unique and very useful new features. For example, it can support multiple VyewBooks. These VyewBooks which can be divided by customers, projects, interest, and more can be saved and open. Additionally, you can now mix and match pages from various file types or layered them together inside the same VyewPage which makes Vyew even more powerful in a collaborative environment.

    We can provide you a sneak preview of this new version should you be interested. Please email me at and I will be glad to send you the URL.
