I've briefly played around with Furl - Your web page filing cabinet this morning. I've only added one
item so far, but that was sufficient to play. I've added a line to the
bottom of my weblog (btm left hand corner) which is the 'list' of Furled
items that I'll have. It's certainly more useful than a blog in some
ways, since you do have access to the entire text, which is particularly
valuable when it comes to searching for information in pages that you've
added. I've also changed the default categories around a little bit as
well.

The value is more to the person than a group I feel. I can certainly see
that it would be useful for me to be able to quickly 'store' articles,
and the search facility is the killer app. for this without a doubt. It
would also be useful to see what other people have stored, but I'm less
likely to search on those, since I don't know what's in those articles.
It also seems a little difficult to find people who have added stuff,
though you can always take a peep at mine - user name is Philb (there's
a surprise!) The comments section is a little frustrating, because it
seems to indicate that there's a comment when there isn't. There also
doesn't appear to be a way of annotating sections of a page either, so
it misses out on that as well. However, I shall carry on using it, and
see what I think - it should certainly integrate nicely into my weblog
entries.
