Communication resources

  • Computer to computer:
    • Video, Mac-to-Mac: iChatAV. Amazing! The future is here! I participated in the first day of an NCEAS meeting from my home office. Coming with next release, 3-way video conferencing.
    • Voice, Mac-to-Mac: iChatAV, Skype
    • Text, Mac-to-Mac/AIM: iChat, AOL Instant Messenger
    • Text, All-to-All: Yahoo! Messenger
    • Shared sketchpad: Groupboard. Local example.
  • Computer to phone: SkypeOut. Two US cents per minute in among US/Europe/Australian destinations. Reasonable rates to the rest of the world. Will even work over dial-up from your back-of-beyond hotel room (well, maybe!).
  • Satellite phone (Asia): ACeS
  • Data via spread-spectrum radio: Freewave. Local example.

Unix (and Darwin/X11) resources

(See also my software pages)
  • pine. Yes I still use pine for email. It's still the most efficient for me, although it's getting harder to use it with SMTP servers that use authentication. You'll also need fetchmail
  • rsync. Can you believe I just discovered this utility after years of unix use? Duhhh! Vital for maintaining a website, but developing it locally.
