« on: April 13, 2007, 12:11:52 PM »
Here is a review of five tools for adding annotations to web pages.

  • Fleck (Bare bones) is the most basic of the annotation services, letting you simply post public or private text notes on a page. Notes can be posted by using a browser plugin or by ajax when Fleck feeds web pages...
  • ShiftSpace (Have your way with any webpage) is an opensource browser plugin (FF only) being developed by NYU’s Interactive Telecommunication Program and is pretty close to internet graffiti. The plugin allows their users...

super find!  :Thmbsup: :Thmbsup:

awesome. 8) 8)

Now I'm wondering how much i've lost by way of erased history, cache, browser crashes (Internet Explorer mostly, though Moz Fx occasionally )

Inspite of my persistent del.icio.us bookmarking practice, i'm sure more than 40% of my tavels on the web are lost :(

Everyone, you really should see these - my initial bias is trailfire cuz it resonates loudly with my ages-old idea of keeping track of the entire path I traverse on the web. Google does it, but they don't tell me what they've tracked. Trailfire is just the best sounding name for it.

That's some good resources.. I was thinking about doing a review of some screen annotation programs earlier..  :Thmbsup:
