I’ve been storing potential course readings to Diigo in a list called Common Issues, as I find that the broad subject categories, such as Environment and Cities, can get confusing in terms of what was actually placed there and whether the intent of the bookmark was for course use or for some other purpose. It would appear that bookmarks without some explanation–tags aren’t enough, as I’m finding tagging is an odd requirement.
I find a lot of interesting reading in the subjects Cities, Environment, Politics, et cetera. But storing bookmarks in any of these areas randomly can create lists that, weeks later, make little sense. Tinderbox may be a better method of storing reading materials as I can use prototypes and agents for visual meaning and as intuitive expression. What I’m finding inconvenient in the size of my laptop screen for dragging things around.
