Thinkature-Share,collaborate,organize


There are a lot of new web 2.0 collaboration sites popping up all over the net. Thinkature has to be one of the best I've seen thus far.

Yes, it seems to be just another mashup site combining communication tools with a whiteboard, but thinkature's unique interface can make it more. Combining a nice modicum of graphics with the ability to add graphics of your own, and freehand in a very simplisitc design makes it attractive. There's no lag to speak of when pointing and clicking to create new boxes, or assigning values to the boxes. Links appear instantly just by typing the URL.

I know I should fight the urge and talk about all the wonderful business aspects of this, but I just have to go straight to the fun. With the ability to share photos, create text boxes, draw, and even chat in real-time all in a synchonous website, it makes for an awesome uber-chat forum. You can manage invites to your account to keep spammers at bay. Once you have your group you can really communicate in a much more dynamic way than simply using a chatroom or instant messenger. Sure you can share photos, and even voice chat using an IM, but you do it in a linear fashion that takes away that feeling of "hanging" with your friends or family.

With the ability to share photos(and even draw on them), chat, and doodle in real-time, all on the same site, you really feel like you're with the person, and not just chatting with them from miles away.
