Thanks for all the great comments on the blog so far. Please keep them coming. I believe the best way to make this a great week is with all of the good feedback I am getting (and will get, I hope) from you.
One of the questions I got the most was what Web apps I am using to "live only in the cloud" this week. So here's a short list that I talked about in the video.
For IM, I am using Meebo. I have multiple IM accounts, and this looked like a good one to try for that.
For an Office set of apps, I am trying out Google Docs.
For Twitter, I am using the Web-based version.
For e-mail, we have a Web-based version of Outlook for e-mail and calendar, so I am using that. But if I wasn't not, I'd be using Gmail or Google Calendar for this.
On the storage side of it all, I am using the free version of DropBox.
I also heard you all loud and clear, and I think I have fixed the glare issues in the way I shot the video.
One more thing: Some people have asked for my Twitter account so they can follow me. Here it is: http://twitter.com/topheratl. No promises I will follow back, but I will be on there talking about this.
OK. Stay tuned later today for a report on how Day One of all of this went. Thanks for reading, and keep the comments going!
