Survival Digital Kit
This is my digital kit. I suggest it to you for your scientific communication pleasure.
Website: I use wordpress as a blog/web. Use
and create a blog where you can post and share.
Twitter: no doubt: create or have an account at twitter.com. I manage it outside the twitter application: using hootsuite, which allows me to track multiple profiles and also my Facebook (just personal) account and pages.
Professional CV - linkedin.com is a must. Please create your account and ask for connections to people you know.
Photos: I reccommend flickr.com. This notwithstanding, there are other good places, e.g. Instagram, because it is easy to store pictures taken by smartphones.
Videos: Indeed, you should have an account with youtube.com
Storing presentations and pdf documents: probably slideshare.com is the best. I also use issuu.com though.
Creativity and ideas - Mindmapping: I use mindmapper, but it may be too expensive. Mindmeister, Freemind and others are sound alternatives.
Office and productivity: Nothing beats Microsoft Office, yet LibreOffice is very good too - and it's free (as in free beer).
Navigating my files. If you use windows, please take a look at the Total Commander application (ghilser.com). It's great.
Web browser: indeed, Chrome is the best of the best.
Mail manager: Indeed, Gmail is the best of the best.
Cloud services: Google in general, but I also use DropBox and Box.net. Did I mention that you should keep copies of your work, pictures, videos, files, etc etc?!
Personal photo service: Instagram, but I also use directly flickr. In any case, all photos end in flicker. I pay a small fee for unlimited space.
Social Media Accounts Manager: nothing beats HootSuite. It can deal with (almost) everything.
