Evernote? Delicious? Zotero? Okay, I have to admit I never heard any of these websites before. If I ever needed to bookmark a website, I would just click on the star on my Google Chrome. But now that I’ve come to know of these website, it comes in pretty handy. I just have to access that website, login and all my bookmarks are there! Sometimes I do forget the website links when I’m using a public computer and I just ended up surfing Facebook!
Anyway, I just briefly went through these few websites. I can’t say which is the best to use but I guess it’s really up to each person’s preference.
Evernote – Keeps a record of everything from notes, pictures, receipts, websites, etc. Can be organize by tags or notebooks. Easily search notes through keywords and tags.
Delicious – A social bookmarking service. Bookmark and share websites and can be accessed from any computer.
Zotero – Function quite similarly to Evernote but with extra functions such as citing, syncing and collaborating.
Among the three of these websites, I created a Delicious account during lab because we can choose between Delicious or Diigo. The name Delicious appeals more to me so I chose it over Diigo. I find this Delicious website really interesting because once I tag the bookmark link, I could see other people who bookmarked the same page as I did. But of course, you can always make your bookmarks private so others won’t see it.
Other then setting up a bookmark account, we also sign up for the NM 2011 group list. I just checked the group list. Nothing has been posted so far. I wonder what the first discussion topic will be.
