Sometimes it's hard to imagine how a small business might use all of today's Web-based tools and services.

This inside look at how *Google* uses its own tools internally -- eats its own dogfood -- could help:

Tools Google Uses Internally

Not only is it interesting to see how this Web-savvy company works, it could represent a sneak preview into the tools we can be expecting from Google in the future.


Google Projects


Here's a snapshot, click the link to get the full story. Among the tools "Googlers" use:

Google Projects

A dashboard to organize all kinds of tasks and a "product snippet" feed that updates co-workers on what you are working on.

Google Ideas

A forum to submit new product ideas. Others can then rate the product or discuss it.

Google Caribou

A version of Gmail's Web-based mail product.

Moma Intranet and Search

Google's version of the corporate intranet, full of all kinds of customizable info boxes and widgets.

Google Expert Search

Enables Google employees can find co-workers with a special expertise, perhaps to get help for their own projects.

A Newer Google Docs

Not surprising that Googlers use Google Docs; but the version shown here seems to be an updated version.
