Thanks to Contentious for the link to Amy Gahran's 10 Cool Ways to Use FURL:
Here are a few of my own:
- Use it to update your customers with news of interest in your field ... spontaneous communication channels that self maintain.
- Use it as a way to support group information sharing for people who don't run their own blogs...
Use it to decorate your website... as you bookmark they show up in the side bar of your website.
I agree that using furl for group work is something that is begging for more direct support in the furl toolset. What I've been doing to help this out is exploring ways of creating a group furl aggragate RSS feed ... and then we each select a category to share and the aggregated feed picks up that category. A little cumbersome, but it preserves individual entries from deletion by other group members.
