Bookmarks, unsubscribed content and RAIDed SSDs. (FTW.)
I access the internet from a number of places—m BlackBerry, my home laptop and my work laptop. Content to which I subscribe I access through Google Reader, and the stuff I like I either share or I star for later reference.
My issue is twofold:
- How do I flag content that I want to access long-term from anywhere?
- How do I share content from sites to which I don’t subscribe?
For the former, I’m talking about sites that I would have traditionally bookmarked. (Wow, how archaic bookmarking sounds.) But in the multi-device world, what is its replacement?
For the latter, I increasingly use Twitter to share this stuff. But shortening URLs from my BlackBerry is by no means fun; and Twitter as a medium is very temporary, even more so than shared items on Google Reader. I certainly wouldn’t have the inclination to sort through my tweets months from now to sift out the shared stuff of interest from the futile shite.
So, advice needed. How do I manage my unsubscribed content? And how do I seamlessly jump between devices and retain my browsing world?
Anyway, thanks to @willsh, here’s the inspiration behind the frustration: a video showing what can be done when you RAID together 24 SSD drives. Geekery at its best.
