Here’s a screenshot of my browser right now with annotations. Click to make it bigger:
I get information from lots of places. Some of the information are cool things I might want to do–like write a paper, apply for a grant, try something in class, etc. Some is stuff I want to write about. Some is stuff I need or want to send to someone else. My strategy has been to just leave the tab open. But then, sometimes Chrome crashes or my computer crashes and bam, all that stuff is gone.
I had been using the handy-dandy “save for later” feature in Feedly and then using IFTTT to save it here as a draft, but that’s not proving very effective. And there’s no way to tell it why I’m saving it. And if I find something somewhere else, like Facebook or Twitter, I’m struggling to save those appropriately, too. And I’ve tried to use Evernote effectively. What I miss is old del.icio.us. It worked so well. Sigh. I need to rethink this. Anyone have ideas?
