    Wow all these sites where I have a password! Sometimes I can't use one of my normal names (like "Loyola") and I try to use different passwords for security reasons. I can't remember them all.

    With Diigo, no problem! Bookmark them and add a private sticky with the details.

    You are right about the privacy issue. ))) I don't use it on anything which is intensely personal or places me at financial risk. Primarily the use is on the journal archives my University has access to and which allow a degree of personalisation such as Table of Content Alerts for which I need a profile. ;-)

highlights and stickies disappearing - 69 views

highlight note sticky
  • Hilary Reynolds
     
    I am not sure if this is related. I forwarded myself an annotated web page and after logging out of Diigo and going to the forwarded link I could see neither highlights nor annotations. Pity I was hoping to sell a couple of colleagues on Diigo. Just glad I sent the link to myself first and not directly to them. Would have embarrassed this lovely social annotation site. The link, BTW, is

    http://www.diigo.com/cgi-bin/1.py?cmd=3020&_ff=loyola&_fk=5d38658b3ecdefe40e3239693e81523c&s_id=883e4f6920bf833fdc1c11a64d7863df&url=http://www.ascilite.org.au/ajet/ajet22/phelps.html

    and I tried in Firefox and IE 7.
    Have managed to see it before though through that URL and I do see it when I am logged in.

I did that using (Portable) Firefox 1.5, so I thougth this problem may be related to the Firefox version or it may be a conflict of extensions. So, I tried a brand-new "installation" of (Portable) Firefox 2.0 today and it worked, that is I could see all highlights and sticky notes directly on the webpage. Then, I went back to (Portable) Firefox 1.5 and it worked as well. The problem was gone. I suppose it was only a temporary problem.

    Oh. Ok thanks. I was under the impression that with the forwarded link they would see what I saw.

    nickywang,

    I checked up in help and this is why I had the idea that they would see what I saw. The help page (http://www.diigo.com/help/forward/2) says "Clicking on the link takes the recipients to an annotated page identical to what you see. (So your private sticky notes and highlights will be seen by the recipients)"

    Maggie,

    Checked on both IE7 and Firefox and it seems to be ok now. Our bandwidth is pathetic so perhaps I was just being too impatient. With regards to your comments about what I am sharing, this really is what Diigo is all about. It enables to me a) Write research notes to myself and not have to worry about a hard drive crash, and b) share this info and get feedback.

    I think you might in the next while gain several devotees from our Uni.

Threaded Annotation - 474 views

discussion feature forum
  • Hilary Reynolds
     
    Chatting to a colleague who I recently introduced to Diigo, we thought it would be incredible if groups could do threaded annotations in pretty much the same way as one might do on a forum. So rather than each member of the group post their own sticky notes which could make things rather chaotic, group members would see an "Add thread" command when they were looking at other members annotations and be able to respond directly to the annotation as a thread and so on and so forth.
  • Hilary Reynolds
     
    Maggie,

    I see I can add a comment to an existing note. but I was thinking more of the threads, than the ability to add to a comment, though I see that did not come out in my post., so in the comments we would see something like :

    maggie_diigo said ...(on 05-11-2007 replied to loyola on #1)

    )))

    Maggie,

    Let me provide you with some context. I am doing a Master's degree in Computer Based/Online education and a major thrust of ours is the social nature of learning. What Diigo enables for learners is the discussion (in-situ) of a web site or online journal article. These discussions could become quite involved, hence the need for threaded discussion. Personally, I would prefer to see a more conventional type of threading such as:

    Post 1
    Reply 1A
    Reply 1Aa
    Reply 1B
    Post 2
    Reply 2A
    Reply 2B

    But I think that the way of doing it in this forum might be easier to implement, which is why I specifically suggested that, but in long threads, the history is more difficult to follow.

    Maggie,

    I gave this some thought overnight and wonder if this might not be a solution. The idea I had would be to be able to rate the tags for a site. So if I have tags - education technology pedagogy "social constructivism" - I could perhaps rate them as - education 4 technology 2 pedagogy 4 "social constructivism" 4. This would convey to the user my opinions of the value of the site with regard to the tags I have allocated.

    This solution does ultimately not resolve my concerns with regard to the numerical assessment of sites, but does represent a workable compromise.

    Another concern I had though, is that of "rating flooding". Let's assume that 2000 employees from a company or University all join and rate their site as 5/5. This is a gross misuse of the rating concept, though of course all 2000 could say great things in their comments.

    Aaarrggghhh!

    Maggie,

    I am going to send you an e-mail about the educational uses of Diigo from the perspective of a student of online education, but I also wanted to mention a useful business application that a friend of mine used Diigo for.

    He is a web designer and using Diigo enables him to have in-situ "conversations" with his clients about design and content issues. Prior to Diigo he says there was confusion about precisely what was being discussed, but now with highlighting and sticky notes, there is no doubt and interaction between him and his clients is far easier. Some clients have joined Diigo and he is able to create a group with them, but for those clients who are intimidated by technology, he can foward to them and then they e-mail him. Even that he says helps tremendously.

    Let's assume I have bookmarked a page and I am now viewing it. What I would like to see is an option on the bookmarks filter to show pages which have

    1) Exactly the same tags as the one I am viewing
    2) Any of the tags on the page I am viewing.

    Effectivey, a "Show similar pages" filter.

  • Hilary Reynolds
     
    I had thought about adding this as a request, but it seemed to me to be far more difficult to annotate a pdf file on the web than an HTML file. This being said, many journals offer a pdf as well as an html version and I simply annotate the HTML version. There are however those who do offer HTML files so if pdf annnotation is possible, it would be great.

links in sticky notes open in the sticky itself - 45 views

    Yeah it is a problem.

    I did a check by attaching a sticky to the highlight I made in your post. If you use the correct html code, it is fine and will open in a new window, but no options are provided in rich editing. You can see Same window will open in the sticky and New window will open another browser window.

    So the links are no use, i can´t even scroll inside of the sticky. I think it should open in a new tab.

    It was no specific annotation. Just a general question. I am supposed to be working on my master's thesis at the moment and saw the possibility that I might want to quote an annotation.

    This is an idea using a fictitious example. I use Endnote which has a Personal Communication citation type (I don't see one on Zotero). There is a field erroneously named Title in which I type:

    Comment on Phelps, Fisher and Ellis: Organisational and technological skills: The overlooked dimension of research training at http://www.ascilite.org.au/ajet/ajet22/phelps.html

    I enter the year and olebrudvik as the author and generate a reference which looks like this:

    Olebrudvik. (2007). Comment on Phelps, Fisher and Ellis: Organisational and technological skills: The overlooked dimension of research training at http://www.ascilite.org.au/ajet/ajet22/phelps.html.

    and the in text citation is (Olebrudvik, 2007)

    What do you think of this as an idea? (BTW the olebrudvik capitalisation is Endnote's not mine.

    I think it would be great to offer an option for the bookmark dropdown on the toolbar which would present a list of a user's tags and a submenu for those tags. Would enable users very quickly to view bookmarks based on tags rather than filtering and then filtering again for a new tag.

    It seems to me that groups are woefully underutilised. One possible reason for this is that it is difficult to locate a group. I would like to suggest that perhaps a tag list/cloud can be created for groups allowing users to hone in on groups that would interest them.

Diigo on Wikipedia - 1 views

  • Diigo is a website which allows users to bookmark and tag websites. It also allows users to highlight all or part of a page and attach sticky notes to the page. These annotations can be kept private, shared with a group within Diigo or a special link forwarded to someone else. The name "Diigo" is an abbreviation for "Digest of Internet Information, Groups and Other stuff".[1] The launch of Diigo met with mixed responses from the unimpressed [2] to the enthusiastic [3]. The product is still capable of further development such as that comprehensively detailed by a Diigo user at [4] but response on whole has been positive an example of which can be seen in the comparison between several social bookmarking sites on IA-Blog [5] Diigo beta was listed as one of the top 10 research tools by CNET in 2006 [6].
