What is stikkit?
Stikkit picks on the concept of using sticky notes
(those little yellow chits we jot down and stick to
our computer-screen, refrigerator-door, wardrobe, ...)
for reminding and gathering details. It is as simple
as writing text, and the application uses natural
intelligence to "magically" convert your note to a
stikkit calendar entry, or contact entry. Stikkit is
one of the prime examples that underline the extent of
Web2.0 usage on the web.
What is its usefulness?
The application allows one to :
1. Manage peeps - Gather and manage contact numbers,
addresses, birthday & anniversary details, and other
useful information about the people we meet and know.
2. Plan meetings - by setting a schedule and sharing
the stikkit with all or other members of the meeting.
You may then edit the stikkit to store notes, thus
removing the necessity of having meeting minutes.
3. Share - allow idea sharing, and gathering
suggestions form people who don't have a stikkit
account also.
4. Email - Stikkit works with email. Hence, you may
BCC stikkit when you compose a mail, and it will
magically create a stikkit for you noting down the
events and contacts from the email itself.
5. Developer API - If have a nose for doing more, then
you can use the API to better manage data, and
customize the application as you so want to.
