Links tagged with “annotation”

  1. Quotebacks

    Simple tool for quoting other sites in your posts. Seems very nicely done, and with good intentions. By Tom Critchlow and Toby Shorin.

  2. Home - Annotator - Annotating the Web

    “An open-source JavaScript library to easily add annotation functionality to any webpage.” Used on


    Chrome extension and bookmarklet for annotating web pages.

  4. bigfoot.js

    jQuery plugin for making footnotes in text nice. I guess this is the thing I see in a few places that I keep meaning to find out what it is.

  5. Home - Annotator - Annotating the Web

    “An open-source JavaScript library and tool that can be added to any webpage to make it annotatable. Annotations can have comments, tags, users and more.” (via Brett Terpstra)

  6. Soul Sides / Sliced: Breaking Down: The Emotions’ “Blind Alley” (Stax, 1972)

    I like this way of discussing a song, displaying annotations while it plays.

  7. MCEngine – The micro-comment engine |

    Another WordPress plugin for adding ability to comment on paragraphs (or just add “Winer Links” linkable paragraphs). Ah, it’s a newer, better version of feedbackBP. Sounds very good, can’t see any example though.

  8. WordPress › Feedback by Paragraph (feedbackBP) « WordPress Plugins

    “This plugin allows users to leave comments at paragraph level as well as post level.” One of a few things that do this. Last updated in 2009… Update: Oh, replaced by MCEngine now.

  9. Vincent van Gogh The Letters

    When the (£450) book of letters came out I thought “that’d make a great website.” I didn’t imagine anything as good as this. Amazing, beautiful stuff. (via @holgate)

  10. EXEgist

    An attempt to create an interface for annotating a text. Baffled me entirely, but it’s early days. (via @cshirky)

  11. A Facebook story | A mother’s joy and a family’s sorrow | The Washington Post

    An obviously sad story, but actually bookmarked as an example of an annotated set of Facebook updates as a news story.


    A WordPress plugin (and more) that adds the ability to comment on paragraphs of a text (like CommentPress I guess?). The UI feels a little clunky.

  13. the Awesome Highlighter >> Highlight text on web pages

    Frames a web page and lets you highlight arbitrary sections of text and add sticky notes. You can’t seem to add notes to highlighted sections though.

  14. Doris Lessing’s The Golden Notebook

    Conversations around pages of a book.

  15. Annotator | Open Knowledge Foundation

    Looks good. jQuery and python (or other backend) for annotating HTML pages. (via Infovore)

  16. Bkkeepr | Track your reading and bookmark on the go

    I either didn’t know James Bridle had done this or I’d forgotten. Bad of me either way. It’s very nice. A bit like LibraryThing, but you add/track/bookmark your reading via Twitter.

  17. Commentpress

    “An open source theme and plugin for the WordPress blogging engine that allows readers to comment paragraph by paragraph in the margins of a text.”

  18. The Django Book: Version 2.0 (English)

    Lets people attach comments to individual paragraphs. Quite nicely done compared to some similar implementations (eg, BookGlutton, CommentPress).

  19. BookGlutton

    Read books online, annotate them and read the annotations of others. Doesn’t feel *quite* right somehow in the way it works, but close.

  20. YouVersion | A Revolutionary Online Bible Reader

    All signed-up readers can contribute notes about passages from many different versions of the Bible. Quite complex but usable interface. (via TUAW)
