jlesage's reviews

by jlesage
my tagcloud from stumbleupon; just discovered I could import my delicious tags and comments there. Stumbleupon is my newest obsessively visited site.

ShopWiki

by jlesage & 2 others
"ShopWiki actively crawls more than 180,000 online stores to ensure you’ll find the products you want at the best prices." For a class looking at web2.0 apps, it's the kind of thing students would enjoy playing with.

by jlesage & 9 others
how to refine a topic and its searches; updated for web 2.0 and specialty searching; good for anyone starting to do Internet research on a topic and will take you to some previously unused search tools

TeacherSource | learning.now . Tag - You're Delicious! | PBS

by jlesage
may 06 discussion of how delicious works; useful overview and collection of comments. PBS teachersouce is also worth visiting from time to time

Squidoo

by jlesage & 1 other
social bookmarking portal lets users share expertise on some subject; room for author's comments and explanations; more discursive than delicious; less writing than a blog; see "Visual Thinking," also "Ephemeral Films"

Research Beyond Google: 119 Authoritative, Invisible, and Comprehensive Resources | OEDb

by jlesage & 7 others
The invisible web, or deep web, is estimated to be 500 times bigger than the searchable web and comprises databases and results of specialty search engines that the popular search engines can't index.

StumbleUpon

by jlesage & 64 others
Firefox extension offers an addictive way to search via categories or keywords or happenstance; you train it, with thumbs up or down on sites, so it learns your tastes; I prefer searches on keywords so far, and have had little desire to "network"

LibraryThing | Catalog your books online

by jlesage & 58 others
You sign up, enter the name of a book, then find out what other folks who liked that book also liked; a tag cloud for the book leads to other books on this topic. Quite addictive, and I just used it to look at the info. around one book.

Why Writers Should Use Social Bookmarking | writingUp

by rappinhood
As writers, we spend more and more time on the Internet, whether we're researching articles or story ideas, looking for work, or just browsing for fun. As we do this, we often find information or websites that we think will be useful later. The old way of doing this was to use your bookmarks or favourites to keep a list of these places. You could even use scrapbooking tools such as those built into Opera or available for Firefox to keep notes on useful pages. But these tools mimic an old style of working, which is not as intuitive as it could be. Enter social bookmarking.
