Is there any sort of Web service where you can highlight things in articles and have the highlighting saved as well as be able to send a link of the highlighted version to people?  And maybe “jot notes in the margin” too?

There’s a bunch of stuff like website annotation and collaboration services that will do that… like fleck.com.

But it’s mostly designed for people who are in a workgroup or whatever. So maybe you friends would have to sign up for accounts too or whatever.

sounds like what you would do on iistix or facebook.  that does sound like a cool service though.

Thanks!  Fleck looks pretty cool.  I’ll have to try it out later.  Although I’d like something where viewers don’t have to register or sign in, so I’ll have to look around.

As for FaceBook, etc. they allow one to share posts but as far as I know not to annotate.  Also I’d need something more professional… this is for example, say I want to send a science journal article to the president of a research foundation with hilighting and comments.

I like this system, but I’m a little weary because it’s refurbished.  does anyone buy refurbished stuff?  how has it worked out for you and would you do it again?

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16883107718#spec

so which system is better...the refurb above or this one below?

is there any program that will allow me to type notes and draw diagrams into the notes at the same time?

I think Microsoft OneNote was something like this. Remember seeing it back in college, but I’d never bring my laptop to class cause it was too cumbersome to draw biochemical pathways. A tablet PC might be useful in this case though.

how come one of my Gmail accounts is giving me access to the new “Themes”, while the other one which I use more often isn’t?
