Instapaper: Saving Articles to Read Later


Digg


Digg has been in the news a bit over recent months, with stories of its demise and failure to stay relevant. Personally I think such talk is premature, though certainly it did fail to listen to its members and its membership dropped as a consequence. This has all changed now and the site has again been overhauled, more in keeping with the wishes of its users.

Digg is a social network where members ‘Digg’ news stories that appeal to them as they surf the web. This can be done by posting the link of the story on the Digg site, in browser extensions/plug ins, etc. Digg is a very user interactive site, where the users likes/dislikes help to promote stories or bury them. If you are a website owner, you can integrate Digg into your site with various widgets and buttons. In short, Digg allows the users to share web content with friends and others within the Digg community.

You can also use Digg to explore news articles and content, simply by visiting the site and looking at the current listings.

Evernote – Remember Everything


Evernote is a web application that allows you to store everything that you need to remember, whether it is a few thoughts jotted down on a scrap of paper, a photo, a business card, newspaper article etc. There seems no end of possibilities for using Evernote.

    Some of the ways I’ll be using Evernote will be:

  • to keep a record of quotes from books I’m reading for easy recall (using tags and notebooks – basically a folder).

  • to keep scanned copies of articles from magazines, newspapers, etc – saves having to hold onto endless copies of magazines and papers, etc.

  • to keep copies of snail mail letters, bills, etc.

  • to keep copies of receipts I may need one day.

That is just a few ways I’ll use it – how about you?
