Curate Any Web Content With WordPress Default Plugin PressThis

Curate Any Web Content With WordPress Default Plugin PressThis | Daily Magazine | Scoop.it

Robin Good: If you are looking for an easy and simple way to start curating content from other sources on the web, with the minimum of additional technology and expense, you may want to look into Wordpress default plugin PressThis.

 

PressThis is essentially a bookmarklet that can be dragged and dropped on your browser bookmarks bar and then used to capture the content of any web page you are on.

 

PressThis automatically captures the URL, title, and site name of the page you are on, while providing you inside an editable WordPress post, any original text you may have selected on the page.

 

Not only. PressThis has also two dedicated functions to capture also any image (along with the text) from any web page (you can choose the one you prefer from a scrollable viewer) as well as any video clip present.

 

PressThis is available inside any installed copy of WordPress inside the Tools menu.

 

Free to use for all WP users.

(Thanks to Laura Brown and Alex Briscese for bringing this valuable plugin to my attention)

You're welcome. Thanks for the credit/ linkback. If you run the Link Library plugin http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/link-library/ (which doesn't come with WordPress) you can also run a bookmarklet which lets you add new links in this same, quick way. Not everyone does much with the blogroll or links now. But I still use mine. Link Library also lets you set up your links like a web directory. Though you do have a lot of background work to do for setting it up. It may not be for anyone who wants something fast and easy. But, it is a free plugin and you could just use it for adding links.

I don't know if any of the tutorials mention this...

Once you have your PressThis loaded on your bookmark bar you can right click it and select Properties. Then change the name the button shows to anything you like. This is great if you have more than one blog you want to send content to. It helps to know which blog is which.

The Importance of Saying Thank You, and Why You Should Say It Often

The Importance of Saying Thank You, and Why You Should Say It Often | Daily Magazine | Scoop.it
"Thank you" can be an incredibly powerful pair of words, especially if the person you're thanking really needs to hear them, or isn't expecting them. In this short TED talk, Dr. Laura Trice muses over the power of saying thank you, and reminds us why we should say it--and ask to hear it--more often.
Official AndreasCY's insight:

These two words are more powerful than you think. We could all stand to use them more often:

SemiWiki - Customization can add extraordinary power to your tool

SemiWiki - Customization can add extraordinary power to your tool | Daily Magazine | Scoop.it
In EDA arena we often find companies providing customization platforms along with the tools they offer to their customers. I admire such companies because they equip the end users of a tool to extend its functionality as they like according to their environment, thus increasing the designer productivity significantly. And I’m witness to some expert creative users of Cadence (http://www.semiwiki.com/cgi-bin/clickthru.pl?http://www.cadence.com/) tools, during my job at Cadence, who made very powerful customized tools based on the SKILL scripting. What reminded me about Cadence and SKILL is a nice video demo of Concept Engineering (http://www.semiwiki.com/cgi-bin/clickthru.pl?http://www.concept.de/) posted at EDA Direct (http://www.semiwiki.com/cgi-bin/clickthru.pl?http://www.edadirect.com/) website. Concept Engineering provides a versatile platform for visualizing a semiconductor design at all levels – RTL, block, gate, transistor and Spice; that helps in debugging a design to great extent. They provide customization platform based on Tcl/Tk scripting which can extend the functionality of these tools to a large extent as

SemiWiki - Signoff Accurate Timing Analysis at Improved Run-time & Capacity

SemiWiki - Signoff Accurate Timing Analysis at Improved Run-time & Capacity | Daily Magazine | Scoop.it
The semiconductor design sizes, these days, can easily be of the order of several hundred millions of cells, adding into the complexity of verification. Amid ever growing design sizes, it’s a must that the timing verification is done accurately. Normally Static Timing Analysis (STA) is done to check whether all clocks and signals in the circuit at every stage are properly timed. While introducing hierarchy is inevitable in architecting such large semiconductor designs, every level of hierarchy leads to abstraction in timing, thus causing certain amount of loss in accuracy of timing. The EDA vendors are struggling hard to strike a balance between memory usage, run-time and accuracy of timing analysis by using different hierarchical methods of timing analysis; a flat design analysis can provide most accurate results as it runs through each leaf level cell and wires through it, but consumes large amount of memory and needs very long
