Not only a great example of a screencast but some amazing advice about managing our socially networked lives by Wes Fryer. Living as we do in a sea of digital information, we all need to set and manage clever “information traps.” The reason is simple: Every day we encounter useful, digital “stuff” we want to save for later and in many cases share with others. In this post, I’ll describe how to use Zoo Tool, Posterous, ifttt (if this then that) and email to create an information trap which takes a link and simultaneously:
saves it to Diigo (my primary social bookmarking site)saves it to a “quick blog” I created on Posterous for stuff I’m reading (wesread.posterous.com) Subscribes to the blog or site in my Google Reader if it has an available RSS feedTweets out the link if I choose to share it with a special tag (zt for “zoo tool”)
