A very interesting blog about notemarking

July 10, 2008

Today I have found a very interesting blog Cloudnotes about
notetaking and bookmarking on the web, or notemarking..

The term “NOTEMARKING” is coined by blog author. Author’s preliminary definition
Notemarking is
“The use of software, either client- or web-based, to store, organize, search, manage, and potentially share or synchronize information, including—but not limited to—Web content and hyperlinks.”

Blog author points out blog content:
This blog is born out of frustration. There’s no one perfect solution for taking notes on the Web. But there’s no shortage of imperfect, not-quite-there applications and ideas. This is my quest for the best way to keep our heads in the clouds.

Blog author evaluates Evernote, Google Notebook, Zoho Note and other tools and
writes about his proposal.

I strongly recommend to subscribe to the blog Cloudnotes.

And I want once more to remind different related terms concerning Web research:

  • Web research
  • Online research
  • Internet research
  • e-research
  • Web clipping
  • Notemarking
  • Online Notebook (e.g., Google Notebook, Zoho Notebook).

Blog as a Web research tool

My colleague Andraž Tori in Twine has nicely proposed to try product Zemanta.

I have downloaded www.zemanta.com and test how it helps me to create a new post.

It’s the first post for testing.

Below is an extract from the suggested article


Previously reviewed by TechCrunch, Zemanta offers itself as a useful tool to help make blogger’s post “more vibrant.”

Currently available only in Firefox and Internet Exploer (the latter still in beta testing), Zemanta’s main goal is to provide to help bloggers find relevant links to their articles by suggesting related content through words and images on the side (after you install it).

One of the great things about Zemanta is that it actually scans the web for Creative Commons content, so bloggers will be able to post useful images without the fear of being sued by an angry photographer/artist (provided they link back that is).
