    1. An annotation service like Hypothesis allows you to highlight, save, and (possibly) share individual lines from a text. This allows for saving this content across a page, and across multiple pages for themes. Used in discussion, this allows for collaborative reading exercises, or group annotations. This also allows for conducting research while you write and annotate. Since Hypothesis will import PDFs, you can annotate in the tool, it will give you a digital trail of breadcrumbs as you’re reading online to see what you found to be important. After you are finished reading and researching, you can go back and see what texts you’ve read, and the important elements from these pieces. Furthermore, if you effectively tag your annotations, you can look for larger themes across your readings.

      Interestingly, Diigo allows many of these same functions.

    1. Our goal to become a social knowledge network however has clearly been eclipsed by social networks such as Facebook, Twitter and Quora.    

      I'd like to know more about the thinking behind this. Is there not room or will there never be room for a more evolved social network to eclipse these?

      Certainly from the product POV, I'd argue yes. Whether the current market of the Internet allows for projects outside these monopolies to succeed is a different question, though.

    2. 2. Staying with a closed, proprietary system & not moving to the adoption of open standards.

      I concur. Diigo could have been a leader in the social annotation space, way ahead of Hypothesis. But now I think H is gaining more momentum than Diigo, because it adheres to open standards.

    1. one

      This reminds me of diigo. I used that application to share annoted web pages with others in my work on occasion. I wonder how this is different.

    1. educational uses of annotation technology

      The most important thing in educational use is categorizing your annotation and notes. I left Diigo due to removal of "lists" from their platform and I'm following your project for the past 7 months and yet this platform lack that fundamental feature as well.
