I think it’s awesome that so many people are producing content on the web.  Really.  The problem is; for every great new source of content there are 1,000 sources of crap.  Mitchell Kapor said it best, “Getting information off the Internet is like taking a drink from a fire hydrant”.  Thankfully there are hundreds of fantastic products and services available that introduce me to new content through my social network or through the wisdom of the crowd.  I love it when I find a new site and learn something new.  Unfortunately, after I find that needle in the haystack, I typically lose it within a week.

I’ve tried using my browser bookmarks, but because I have more than one computer, the bookmark I want is never on the device I’m reading.  I write down URLs and stick them in my pocket or email them to myself with the hope that I remember to find it later.  That’s why I absolutely love the new bookmark application in  Last week I met a writer/blogger through twitter that I like.  So I bookmark her website and enhance her entry with important information like how we met and why I liked her.  I can add multiple links to the same bookmark entry, in this case her blog and her book on Amazon.

I can access it from any computer and it’s backed up forever!  My new bookmarks are much more useful, so I spend more time curating them, which makes my bookmarks all the more useful.  It’s a beautiful cycle!
