Random snippets of articles, books, magazines, and websites that were striking at the time I read them.

Furl -- Bookmarks on Steroids

Stumbled across Furl today, and it didn't take long for me to sign-up to this free, fabuluous service.

From the website:
''Furl lets you save anything you see in your browser. The easiest way to do that is to have a "Furl It" button right on the toolbar of your browser. When you find something you want to save, you click the "Furl It" button.

That opens up a new window with the title and URL of the page you are looking at already filled in. You can then add comments to, rate, and categorize the page (or not). When you're done, click "Save".

That's all. Next time you view your archive you will see the new entry.''

Once you've got your archive set-up, people can view your public entries, sign up to be notified of updates, and yes, they can even blogroll it (an RSS feed is available per archive).

I hope the business model behind the site is totally solid, because I want this free service to be around forever.
