Now with the Read/Write Web in full effect there are many ways to anchor, bookmark, comment, note, mark-up, review, annotate, clip, and share webpages.
NOTE: This post is attempting to focus on annotating and leaving notes on webpages, for the many web note services check out, Fifty Ways to Take Notes by Solution Watch.
But since web note service that have a sticky feel are so cute like webnote, Jotcloud and the peculiarly named Firedoodle, I have included many, especially the productive stikkit…and let’s not forget to mention fancy sidebar wiki notes.
Let’s start off with Silkscreen which does many things
- record your browser with playback
- share your browse history
- annotate and markup webpages
Web Sticky notes
- added feature of seeing all your notes on one page and organise your notes by tag
- unlike the others this isn’t for leaving notes on webpages, it’s more on collaboration and productivity, like: send a stikkit meeting invite and use it for documented notes afterwards
- leave sticky notes on webpages, you and others can action these notes like: email this, blog this, save this…you can also put a footer button on your blog posts, so people can annotate your post, a bit like the ReviewBasic button
- annotate a webpage and like Fleck add a footer button and like blogEverywhere cc: the post to your regular blog
- the buttons are…annotate and; email, blog, save, and print

Social Network Sticky notes

- also has a feature where you can subscribe to blogs, maybe this feature is like the BlogRovr service.
- social network blogging, where your posts are sticky notes attached to a location
Desktop Sticky notes

Social Network Web Clips

What about generating a hyperlink list by scrapping all the links on a page and listing it as a bibliography with inline numbers denoting which part of text the link in the bibliography refers to…also see here and here.
Hmm, web annotation is totally old school.
