When I first created this page based off of Nash’s Help page, I intended it to focus on those things I could do to help others with their web presence. Now, with the launch of the Engine and my subsequent move to incorporate it into my own site, that seems like less of a necessity. Instead, my intent is now to open up my space to others that need their voice to be heard.
So in the box below, share your thoughts or ask for help. If you would like a response or to be attributed to the comments, share your name and email address, but feel free to remain anonymous. I hope this message finds you well and I hope I can help no matter your current situation.
Did the Internet community peak at bookmarks? Asked in a different and perhaps more complete way: just as technologies like RSS and email in their purest forms are hard to beat even as technology marches forward, what better technology exists to keep track of information on the ever-expanding Internet than bookmarks? Taken a step further, what better way to share the bookmarked information than a site of your own? As such, I‘ve been reading, which is why I write now.
Working in and having a passion for libraries, I am struck by the fact that the way bookmarks work in the physical world is not directly analogous to bookmarks in the digital world. Bookmarks in the digital world are instead like dog-eared pages or highlighted passages; if you think of the Internet as a single tome, that is. In any case, anything that moves you to deface a book should probably be shared or become immortalized in some other way than just a reference for a future version of yourself.
