Research, Share, Collaborate with Diigo

A new tool for social bookmarking and sharing the information you find on the Web: Diigo. It promises to offer a lot of tools to archive everything you find interesting enough to remember. And to annotate: you can highlight and add sticky notes to websites.

Is Diigo better than other services, like Evernote (“Welcome to your notable world. Use Evernote to save your ideas, things you see, and things you like. Then find them all on any computer or device you use”)? A recent post at the Dutch Lifehacker Blog showed me that there are enough Evernote Life-Hacks to invest a little more in exploring Evernote – until now I’ve only used it as a bookmark-tool. So, I’m not sure about Diigo yet, but of course I will give it a try.
Other services that offer comparable features: Twine (“organize, share, discover”) and Zotero (“gather, organize, and analyze” “See it. Save it. Sort it. Search it. Cite it.”). And of course Delicious (“Keep, share, and discover”). Like Evernote, Diigo offers you the opportunity to import your delicious bookmarks and synchronize them.

  • The Aesthetics and Beauty of Knowledge

    Shih was the opposite of facts and raw information; shih was the elegance of knowledge, the insight and skill to organize knowledge into meaningful patterns. As an artist chooses colours or light to make her pictures, a master of shih chooses textures of knowledge – various ideas, myths, abstractions, and theories – to create a way of seeing the world. The aesthetics and beauty of knowledge – this was shih.

  • Geek Attitude

    The attitude thing is about flexibility, portability, creativity, sociability and jamming (ran out of suitable “ity” words!). It’s about improvising – in the practical and musical senses of the word; not getting tangled in boundaries and the “right” way to do things.
    Definitely the only way to travel.
