Start Up: Origami


The link below is to a new web application that is all about keeping families together via the cloud/web. It is not yet operational but you can sign up for early access (which I have done). I have no more idea about this site than what can be read on the website at the moment – but I’m intrigued. I’m looking forward to seeing what the site has to offer.

To sign up for early access visit:

Jolicloud Me – Bring Your Social Cloud Together in One Place


  1. Jolicloud Me has recently entered public beta and I have only recently signed on to try out the web application/social network. It does appear impressive for what it attempts to do. It is a curation service for your social presence on the World Wide Web, bringing all of your social cloud together in one place. That is the aim anyhow – being in beta you can expect plenty more services to be added as time goes by.

    The articles below provide a useful introduction to the service.

Delicious


Delicious is a bookmarking/favorite web application, in that it saves and archives the URLs that you like. Of course you can save your bookmarks/favorites in your browser, which I do with Google Chrome (Bookmarks). I use Google Bookmarks for mine, as well as Delicious (which I use for my public bookmark sharing web application). I also use Wonderpage (see https://onetoday.wordpress.com/2011/02/02/wonderpage/ ) to visually show my Delicious bookmarks as thumbnails of the page.

Why do I use both Google Bookmarks and Yahoo’s Delicious (currently owned by Yahoo anyhow). Well there are a number of reasons. Firstly I prefer to use the Cloud for most of my Internet tasks, which will generally always allow me access to my data no matter what computer I use and/or wherever I am. Using both also allows me to have a readily available backup – which is always wise I think. Of course I also like to allow visitors to my Blogs, websites and so on, to have access to sites that I think are fairly useful and valuable.

Anyhow, have a look at Delicious – it is in my opinion the best bookmarking application in the Cloud.
