Occasionally I wish there were a way to "favorite" DW posts to come back to them to read later. I realize there's both a) tabs in my browser window and b) the "memories" feature, but I occasionally wish I could do something similar to what I do with Twitter, which is to pin stuff I might not have time to read on the run and then come back to it later, where I can see all the pinned posts on a single page.

Tabs don't work well for that because I'd have 40,000 tabs open. Also, I read across multiple devices, and the tabs don't always sync up between devices based on the browswer. OneTab, which at least condenses everything to a single tab, doesn't really sync across browsers, either.

"Memories" is okay, except I like to keep "memories" more tailored towards, well, just that - stuff that you like so much that you want to keep it around forever and ever, and not just stuff that I want to set aside for a little bit.

I realize it's probably completely unworkable, but I can dream.

I actually will dump DW pages into Pocket, my general read-later app. Sometimes I can't read then in there because privacy but it still keeps the link and reminds me to go back.

I can't link from my phone, but Google "One Tab"! It might help.

Well, there's the ability to sticky your own posts when you want them to stay at the top. Maybe a suggestion could be made to be able to sticky someone else's posts at the top of your reading page?

Firefox does sync across computers/devices now (with an account, which is no more than a username/password).

Re: Pocket, I've tried but don't like because you have to sign in just to see your bookmarks. I take it it's like de.licious for the browser. Or something like that. Firefox syncing is something I wish we had years (like 10 of them) ago. Lost so many bookmarks over the years to device re-installs, computer crashes, whatever, that I can never gather all together again.

Some people swear by instapaper?

I signed up to pinboard in the early migration from delicious (back when it was a one-off payment), and it's not QUITE as integrated as delicious (no right-click-a-hyperlink-to-save) but there's a 'quick pin' applet which you bookmark and use to save a page for later. I've also found a decent apple-pinboard app, although it cost a few bucks. I think new pinboard accounts end up with a monthly or yearly membership fee now, so it might not be your best choice.

"The Knowledge That...

...the atoms that comprise life on earth - the atoms that make up the human body, are traceable to the crucibles that cooked light elements into heavy elements in their core under extreme temperatures and pressures. These stars- the high mass ones among them- went unstable in their later years- they collapsed and then exploded- scattering their enriched guts across the galaxy- guts made of carbon, nitrogen, oxygen, and all the fundamental ingredients of life itself. These ingredients become part of gas clouds that condense, collapse, form the next generation of solar systems- stars with orbiting planets. And those planets now have the ingredients for life itself. So that when I look up at the night sky, and I know that yes we are part of this universe, we are in this universe, but perhaps more important than both of those facts is that the universe is in us.”

― Neil deGrasse Tyson
