Miles dropped a email about kandid . It sounds interesting and I may try it out later after some other things have been done on my giant to do list. But my reason for blogging has to with how this reminds me of apps on my old 16bit machine. At the time there was little way to get the real feel for maths in art. It took too long to do fractials for example. I remember playing with L-systems and it would take hours to build a highly populated L-system. However even then I enjoyed the results. If you remember the old cubicgarden background, that was built using L-systems.
Your Online Filing Cabinet for Useful Web Pages Furl is a new web browsing tool that lets you save and organize thousands of useful web pages (you know, the ones you want to save for future reference but then can never find again) in a personal “web page filing cabinet”.
Once saved, you can effortlessly find any page again later using a powerful full text search tool. With Furl you can forget trying to save and organize dozens of bookmarks, forget saving web pages to your desktop, in fact forget everything except how to find a useful web page again next time you need it.
As Sebastian Fiedler rightly points out, the interesing thing is that you can fiddle with the rss feed it gives off. So this will basicly do what my bookmarks page does already but with a little xsl can be tightly intergrated into anything. I'm thinking about for example a reading list of not only books but websites for my students. Or with a little aggeragation you could pull together a couple lecturers or even students favourate sites into one feed. Nice.
