How to analyze a collected info?

November 17, 2008

I use Evernote now and I collected more than 3600 information clips. There are some different goals why I collect and save the inforamtion:

  • I save it as I need to update three courses for my Univeristy (knowledge management, eWork and groupowork (team work).
  • I save as I plan to particpate in some new projects (wellness, eHealth, local government, eGovernment, eSkills etc)
  • I save when I have prepare some review in month or a shorter time.

Therefore when I collect and save I try to add tags about importance and date when I plan to read and analyze the saved item .

When I nedd to write a report I retrieve information, browse it and update my tags and add new tags.

Then I export selected information sources and often i save them in table format.

Then I select once more the most important clips and save them in th eother column.

Then I copy and paste this column with the main inforamtion and get some abstract or short summary.

I have used Copernicus Summarizer as well but it is convienent to use it only for one source but not many at once.


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).
