Sidebar Item: Furled Links
One of the internet-based tools I’ve found to be tremendously helpful is Furl. Furl takes the place of bookmarks in my browser: When I find a webpage that I want to come back to later, I press one button to save it to my personal Furl archive.
In addition to saving the address of the page, Furl captures the content of the page. So, if it is a newspaper article that will expire after a week, I’ll still be able to get back to it. Handy, eh? And, best of all, it’s free!
Today, I figured out how to put links to my Furled pages in the sidebar here at Live Sensibly. If you look under latest links furled you’ll see the last ten webpages that happened to catch my eye. There will often be overlap between the Furled links and what I’m talking about in the main blog, but sometimes you’ll get a glimpse of what I’m working on for a future article.
Please note, though, that some of the links there will be to stuff I’ve not yet read. I’m not vouching for the credibility or value of the material there — think of it as a wicker basket of newspaper clippings I’ve cut out and saved to read some other day.
You can also follow the more link at the bottom of that box to see all of the odds-n-ends that have accumulated in my clippings basket since I started using Furl in January. You’ll find that some of the links are now dead, but let me know if there’s a page you’d like to read, and I’ll see if I can at least dig up excerpts.
