What’s #remember

Sometimes I tweet something with the #remember hash tag.

That’s a tag that get’s caught by If This Then That to archive the tweet as a delicious bookmark. Other hash tags in the tweet get converted to delicious tags. Yumm.

It’s a neat way to archive stuff without hoping you’ll be able to search back through twitter for it…


Scientific Discoveries with Social Media

The Victorians did this sort of thing by amassing large collections of bugs. It looks like Generation Z are going to do it from the comfort of the sofa.

Details and links in the Engadget post.
