Clipboard is launched
Today sees the launch of Clipboard.com - a new way to organise, save and arrange content on the web. It's going to be something that tries to fix how we save videos, text, images and Flash documents for future reference. So no more bookmarking or sending links to yourself on email. Nice.
We don't need to explain things. Here's what the team at Clipboard say:
"Clipboard is the best way to save anything online. Since the Internet is more than two decades old, doesn't it seem strange that the typical way to save something online is to put it into an email or a document? We think so too, which is why we built an easy and powerful tool to help you. All of this may sound simple, but we think it's actually quite significant.
"We believe that someday soon everyone will be saving and organizing their online life in a way that is easy, fun and reflective of themselves. It is a world where everyone is highly engaged and active in saving their life experiences online. We are here for you and we are in this for the long haul. Our mission is to help you organize your online life."
So how to get started? Sign up and create an account and start creating your own 'clips'. You can do this by downloading their very own 'Clipper' tool and adding it to your Bookmark Bar. Once activated and enabled, your mouse will behave differently, highlighting different parts of a web page in which you can clip. Easy!
After you've created a 'clip' you can start to organise things by tagging it with either text or hash tags, i.e. words that are prefixed with the hash symbol. Once you've organised clips, you can also 'share' them with others. Beautiful.
And you can easily access all your clips via three main sections: Home, Shared and Public. Home being where all clips that you've created are kept... Shared being of those you've shared and Public showing public clips by others.
So go check out Clipboard.com today and start to clip things you find on the web. You'll never be digging through your Gmail box or searching through badly organised bookmarks again.blog comments powered by Disqus
