Dimdim.com allows you to “Web-conference” through any browser. It supports both audio and video, lets you share PowerPoint slides, and even “shine a laser pointer on a virtual whiteboard.”
Diarised.com makes the planning of meetings automatic. Give it a list of invitees and times that work for you, and it’ll send out e-mails and come up with the “best time based on their responses.”
Oopsimlate.com provides cell-phone software that checks the clock against your schedule and GPS coordinates to determine if you’ll be on time. If not, it sends out apologies and your “new ETA.”
Getmooh.com can help spring you from meetings “lasting longer than your patience.” At a pre-chosen time, the site sends you a seemingly important phone call, thus “legitimizing” an “early exit.”
