Jane Hart is compiling a list of the top tools folks use in their learning and working lives. It is aggregated from the top tens of contributors active in e-learning.

It is broadly what you would expect near the top, with Firefox, Skype, Delicious and Google stuff heading the list. Some of the individual lists have some less pervasive 'tools' and they are worth a scan.

I was interested to see that Google Reader was joint third (mentioned by fourteen people), ahead of Bloglines which was in ninth (mentioned by ten).

It's also interesting that of the top 10, only one is a pay service: Microsoft Office.

In my world (marketing communications), Photoshop and the rest of the Adobe Creative Suite (Illustrator, InDesign, etc.) and/or Quark Xpress would need to be near, if not at, the top.
