Microsoft Introduces Wiki-Like Listas Service
Microsoft's Live Labs has debuted a new service to allow users to create and share various types of lists. Called Listas, the application can be used not only for lists, but for notes, favorites and other communal types of information. Like Wikis, the lists can then be shared with the public, which allows for group editing.
Along with the service, Live Labs has created a companion toolbar for Internet Explorer which allows users to collect information from the web and add it to their lists, be it search results or full or partial web pages. Users also can subscribe to others' lists through RSS, the company said.
"We encourage you to try using it for meeting notes, bookmarks, shopping lists, to plan a night out, or whatever other creative ways you can think of," the Live Labs team said.
