Are You Using Trailmeme?

According to ReadWriteWeb, “Social bookmarking sites like Delicious are useful for collecting bookmarks, but they don’t allow users to really draw connections and tell stories. That’s where curation-focused services like Pearltrees and Trailmeme come in. Trailmeme, which was incubated at Xerox and launches at DEMO this week, allows users to bookmark sites and then organize them in tidy diagrams, making it easy to highlight the relationship between different items and for readers to browse these links.” For complete article, click here.

According to the Trailmeme site, “Trailmeme is a new kind of Web publishing that you can use to create a trail of content on a specific topic that’s interesting to you. You can also read other peoples’ trails and walk them to keep up with any updates they make. The technology allows you to gather related content from the Web in one place, in an order or sequence that you think helps make sense of it all. Any number of pages can be collected, organized, and annotated in whatever way you think is best. Trails don’t need to go in a straight line, either. You can make a whole map of content from different sites, connecting web content in multiple and meaningful ways. Trailmeme is not the only place where this technology can be used. The Trailmeme for WordPress plugin allows you to create trails out of posts on your own self-hosted WordPress blog. This can help you reorganize your blog in a variety of ways, rather than just having reverse-chronological order as the organization.”
