Diigo complement suggestion

    Occasionally it's desirable or necessary to:

    a) use something other than Diigo as a primary bookmarking service

    - with the intention of later:

    b) copying data to Diigo.

    Group members: what's your favourite alternative service for
    bookmarks that will be repeated to Diigo?

    Zotero (a free and powerful bibliography add-on of FireFox) maybe an option.

    I used to bookmark a web page on Diigo, as to share with colleagues, and save it in Zotero, for personal reference.

    Zotero also have tag functions, so I apply the same set of tags to "Zoteroed" items and "Diigoed" items. When I can only use one service due to the restriction (like in public computer station), I will add a "todo" tag so that I could update the other one afterwards. For example, I may leave a "todiigo" tag in Zotero items so that I could add them to Diigo later (especially when Diigo's highlight function becomes stable again)

    Zotero also has its web version to synchronize data with the desktop add-on. But it's mainly for reference purpose and is far less sociable than Diigo. More and more fans of Zotero are advocating synchronization between Diigo and Zotero now. I wish that Diigo could consider this demand.

    While I could save a hard copy with tag in my desktop, I will feel more secure in sharing bookmarks with others.

    Here, I like to use Faviki before Diigolet. The mash is outlined at http://groups.diigo.com/Diigo_HQ/forum/topic/48875

    Main benefit: Common Tag format

    When I don't use Faviki, it's usually because I'm unexpectedly logged out. This bug and others are summarised at http://faviki.wikia.com/wiki/Bugs

    Another bookmarklet that I sometimes use:

    * Read Later
      — not to be confused with Read It Later.

    Instapaper service, and software for iPhone OS, is extremely highly rated.

    Workflow

    After reading texts, formatted by Instapaper, I might decide to bookmark and annotate in Diigo.
