Web 2.0 Updates

Google Sites now available to anyone

When Google Sites was first launched in February 2008, it was part of the Google Apps group aimed at enterprises . Now anyone can create a wiki web site using Google Sites, without the need to have their own domain. You can keep it private, share it with a small group of people or make the whole thing public. You can also choose who is allowed to edit the pages on your wiki. The pages are hosted on Google at http://sites.google.com/%5Byour-website%5D and you can have as many pages as you like for free.

The WYSIWYG editor allows you to format the text; embed documents, calendars, photos, videos and gadgets directly into the page; and offer options for commenting. You can even customise it with your own logo. You can view previous versions of a page, roll back or revert to a previous version of the page, and receive email alerts of changes to pages.

There is a short tutorial that takes you through the basics of setting up a Google Site.
