A new toy/tool.....and a test.

I found this Firefox add on that claims it will allow me to "clip" info and stoof from sources and websites more easily. I thought i would give a try.

Here is a little info in case you are interested in this sort of thing. It seems handy so far. Final assessment to come at a later date.
clipped from

Instead of linking to entire web pages, Clipmarks lets you clip exactly what you want others to see. Our browser add-on lets you save and share what you're reading on the web with greater precision than is possible with links. There are lots of things you can do with your clips:

  • Save them on Your clips can be saved publicly for others to learn from or be entertained by, or you can make them private. Either way you've got a fully searchable collection of great things you find on the web.
  • Post them directly to your blog Clipmarks offers direct integration with wordpress, blogger, typepad, live journal and other blogging platforms, enabling you to post anything you clip from a web page directly to your blog. demo
  • Email them to friends Straight from any web page you can clip and email something you want friends, family or co-workers to see. demo
  • Clipmarks
     blog it

    There is a excruciatingly small limit to the number of words/characters you are allowed to clip per use. This may greatly limit my use of the tool.....just a note of caution to anyone interested in trying it.
