Create a Tour of Web Pages with Agglom

Sharing web pages in a conversation shouldn’t be as tricky as it is. Sometimes you’re on the phone, or speaking to a group of people and there isn’t a handy way to bring people along with you from page to page and then let them have easy access to those pages after the conversation is through.

Enter Agglom, a simple little service built by Italian developer Enrico Foschi. It’s a Firefox plug-in that will make sharing a list of links far easier than it’s been before.

How It Works

Agglom is a remarkably easy way to create a “slide show” of live links that you can share with other people. See the screencast demo we recorded below.

For those who prefer to read, there’s a text description after the video.

After downloading the plug-in, you can click on the Agglom button at any time. It captures all the URLs from each tab in your browser. After making some admin decisions, including public/private or password protection, you receive one link that you can share with anyone else. They can then follow through the slide show along with you, access it later, get any changes made to it by RSS, leave comments and suggest additional links.

It’s simple but looks quite useful.

Presentation Is Powerful

Earlier this month we wrote about five lightweight apps that are useful for web consultants and trainers. If we had known about Agglom then (we just discovered it today via Marjolein Hoekstra’s blog CleverClogs) it would have made a great fit there as well.

The web is changing so fast and there’s so much information available that providing accessible ways clearly show people what you’re talking about is the best way to help friends, family and co-workers wrap their minds around the powerful new tools now available.

Agglom is simple – that’s good. It also looks quite useful. That’s a sweetspot for applications these days. Can you imagine using it? We can.
