So here is it, the first blog post to discuss and review the 5 featured lists of the week.
We’re hand curating a new list each week. We want you to help us find the lists for next week and for every week moving forward. 5 lists per week. That’s our rule. Add your suggestions to this list
We announced the reason for the change here. We will only be featuring lists that are embedded in other blogs. Listly on Listly alone will not make the cut. We’re curious to know what’s your Listly?
This is not about Listly, it’s about your Listly and what you make it.
So if your list isn’t embedded go fix it. Then you can play.
Here are this week’s lists and links to the posts where they are embedded.

After watching the quality of presentations and speakers slip off the scales as organizations like TED created industry changing events and content, I felt it was time to take things back into the communities hands again. The ITSM community has grown and become more connected than at any time in history.
At the same time technology allowed me to be streamed to LeWeb and be on stage with Google product manager while attending another conference. I was finally in two places at once.
The principles are simple:
Streaming LIVE to Youtube via Google Hangouts
No Registration to watch, no sign up process.
Mobile connectivity to WATCH and INTERACT
24 CROWD sourced speakers.
Start in New Zealand and FOLLOW the SUN until we finish in Hawaii.
Student Workflow in the iClassroom: Recently I presented at the Oregon Academic Technology Society held at the University of Portland. The topic was “Student Workflow in the iClassroom”. Apps and iLessons shared ranged from flashcards and PDF annotation to multimedia projects and presentations and workflow solutions. I compiled all of the info in a List.ly (seen below) which includes all of the apps (and resources) as well as hyperlinks to student app reviews, iLessons, and student products.
The SharePoint Community Partners List is a community of SharePoint partner sites all dedicated to delivering excellence around SharePoint.
Run by Denise Wakeman and Ellen Britt, this is a contest who’s judges include Alltop.com founder Guy Kawasaki, Smashwords founder Mark Coker and Internet marketing veteran Jim Edwards. The contest judges the quality of the blog’s content, frequency of their posts, reader involvement and the blog’s ranking (in that order).
It’s been embedded in many blogs. 100+ people have voted, commented, contributed or followed the list. Denise has been a big supporter of Listly since she wrote her 1st post on list making and the value of list posts.
What I like about the list is it’s a great example of where just being on the list matters, but participating matters more. It’s also a human curated contest. It’s not solely vote driven. Listly is awesome for polling opinions, but when it becomes a popularity contest people’s “inner-gamer” surfaces and things can get funny.
Listly has helped share ans amplify this list, both on Listly and across other blogs. At the time of writing 800 of 2,100 views have come from the futureofink site itself.
Big kudos to Chris Dancy @ServiceSphere for inspiring and organizing this event. I felt a good deal of pride for our participation.
Nicolle’s lists always make me smile. Nicolle Müller has made 150 +lists on Listly. She has shown what it takes to be persistent. She’s proved that consistency bares fruit.
Her lists always get engagement from her community and the activity levels have risen over time.
I never know too much of what’s going on as I always get to read the google translated version. It just reminds me that sharing passions is fun and social.
Her content is always fun and on theme and she always manages to source and curate unique content.
