Permission to link

· Information design

Let’s be path of least resistance about linklogging:

  1. I’ll add a new category (unless you think links don’t need a category but do need to be categorized using existing categories.
  2. Start posting links to that category (or to any category).
  3. Use the title field, but it can be a simple keyword, no requirement for pithy titles.
  4. Don’t post raw URL but use bookmarklet-type approach to grab linktext and anchor tag, and then just publish or – if you feel like it – tweak, add a wry comment, or whatever.
  5. If we use categories we can sort them onto the side or give them conditional formatting, maybe to make the titles look more like keywords.

Or we can wait for the next great rearchitecting….
