Recording hyperlinks as we talk and write

About: sustainabel renton notes


Last evening i took some notes from myself during the Sustainable Renton meeting.  I did in in fastblogit.  As i encountered a reference in the discussion i googeled the phrases that were mentioned in a separate tab, chose the website or concept on the web, and then returned to the blog edit screen and directly applied the hyperlink.

I thought that worked well.  ...er, at least for me.

what the world needs now is to make that process faster and easier ... eliminate many of the keystrokes.  It should be possible to even project those on a screen for everyone to see specifically what is being referred to in discussions.

on your ipad?  I have been trying to figure out where is the best place to store bookmarks or links in the so called cloud. Google bookmarks is defunct isn't it?


i did it on my laptop which is quite easily ported and used in such a meeting ... and many other people do that as well.  a iPhone is not just a little bit tedious to type on ... although i have seen people thumming theirs a mile a minute.  the iPad is denise's and she wants it to herself.

yes google bookmarks is defunct.   now i share my bookmarks between *my* devices in the so called cloud by syncing firefox from devise to devise.   That, however, does not transfer them to the iPhone probably because i don't use Firefox there ... but maybe i could.  In a way if i want to share a bookmark on all my devises i use my own reading list.  But if i want to share a mark with others in the world i prefer using G+ and putting it in a tag room appropriately associated with other tags.  Delicious used to work well for that, but nobody uses that anymore if it still exists.  Facebook does not work very well there because you can't go back and search for old taggings. 

What has been your recent experience here?  i am very curious.

I need to clean out my computer & don't want to lose my links if I have to reinstall the operating system.  Fastblogit can also get lost, but it is pretty good for maintaining an external memory that I can find things in. Nothing is likely to survive an EMP weapon. I prefer something independent of the hardware like Apple - I only have an iPod.


well, in that case why not just use Firefox bookmark sync.  You establish an account and sync your book marks to it.  Then you should be able to start fresh with a totally clearn system and install firefox and sign on to your account an sync up to that which Firefox stored for you in the cloud.   Now bear in mind i have never actually proven that all the way.  You may want to verify that it actually does work that way before cleaning your machine.   Incidentally chrome and safari and probably even IE have just about the same faculty i do believe.

Miss anything while you were recording hyperlinks?
not inconcievably.  i can, after all, chew gum and walk at the same time.  the more likely effect is that i have some of these connections burned into my memory so that i can actually vance on them should i choose ... unlike before where they just went in one ear and did not get stuck in the brain pan.

anyway i don't want the to get lost amoungst other consideration.  me thinks it is what the world needs now.  perhaps even with the projection on a screen so that people in the meeting will see exactly how what is being discussed is connected to the rest of, at least the cybernetic, world.

as far as i know there is no real time tool that can keep up. i think it would catch on.  somebody, like maybe a Google, should try to make one.    since i know my way around fastblogit, i could keep up, but should it be faster and easier, it would have taken far less attention away from my attention to what people were saying.

I mentioned that because I had the bad habit while attending lectures at UCLA of not taking good notes so that I could spend more time listening to the professor & trying to comprehend what he was saying.

Maybe a [wikipedia subject] would be good since most well thought ideas are there.
