- Please name 10 specific tools rather than generic technologies (e.g. “Blogger” or “WordPress”, rather than “blogs” or “blogging”).
- Note that a vote for Microsoft Office will be split over Word and PowerPoint, so please vote individually for these Office tools, i.e. Word, Powerpoint, Excel, Outlook etc.
