Side note: I am not remembering actually any URLs of these
blogs, all I do is just fire up Google and then type in the keyword
i.e. sacha wiki, theSpoke punzki, theSpoke Stanley, theSpoke Howard.
This brings me to a realization that “keywords” are important in
managing information. Should there be a tool that manage keywords
that manages information then that would be very useful.
URLs are rarely human-friendly. They require memorization. Keywords,
on the other hand, are personally meaningful and much easier to
I think of my brain as an index more than a database. <grin> I
don’t have to remember everything, as long as I have a general idea of
what’s out there and where to find more information. (I wonder if this
preference is related to the general learner / specific learner.)
Advantages: I can occasionally pull odd-but-useful information out of
my head, and I’m good at searching for information. Disadvantages:
When external data disappears, I’m stuck with vague handwaving and
whatever’s in my head. ;)
By the way, if you’re looking for something to help you meta-tag the
Net, I recommend del.icio.us. It’s fun to use
keywords to categorize sites, and it’s even more fun to check out what
other people have filed in interesting categories.
