WebNotes is a web organization tool created by a group of MIT alumni. Their goal was to revolutionize the way people collect,organize and share information on the Internet!
After checking out WebNotes, I have to agree that they are on the right track. If you have ever used PostIt notes to put up stickies for things you want to remind yourself of, WebNotes will be right up your alley.
Wtih WebNotes, you will be putting up sticky notes on any web page and you will see them when you visit the same page again.
WebNotes Quick Features
- WebNotes is a free service that is in private beta at the moment.
- You can highlight text and stick notes to web pages
- All highlighted text and sticky notes are organized in folders within your WebNotes account.
- You can share the pages you annotate via email or links with your friends, colleagues or family.
- You can move annotations between folders in your account
- You can also publish your annotations to a printable document format.
WebNotes is supported on all major browsers – Firefox (Mac, PC, Linux), Internet Explorer, Google Chrome & Safari.
WebNotes may look too simple feature-wise. But, it addresses one need in this Internet age. Ability to add notes to a web page and highlight text and share it with someone you send the page to. The highlighting helps the other person to quickly read the points of interest and the sticky notes will convey your thoughts on it.
This kind of web interaction could be priceless when you are working with someone from across the world or when you just want to share and get thoughts asynchronously. Be it educational research or just pure fun.
You have to use Adobe Flash 10 for WebNotes to work.
