Are Flakes for You?

Do you have password dementia – then Pageflakes is for you. While at the NCaect Conference I learned about Pageflakes. This website is among the growing popularity of websites using AJAX (Asynchronous JavaScript and XML), a group of inter-related web development techniques used for creating interactive personal publishing solutions. You can create your own homepage and access it without having to sign in. Pageflake is organized into tabs with each tab containing selected user content called flakes. Each Flake varies in content; information such as RSS/Atom feeds, Calendar, Notes, Web search, weather forecast, del.icio.us bookmarks, Flickr photos, social networking tools like Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, email and user-created modules.
