Infopeople Task Group Using Web 2.0 Tool

Four Infopeople staff, fondly referred to as "peeps," (Eileen, Gail, Gini and Linda) have been using a FREE, easy-to-use and very practical Web 2.0 online "to do" shared list service, Ta-da Lists.

• make multiple lists you can share with other people (co-workers, friends, family)
• subscribe to your lists in RSS
