I just found out about this Firefox add-on. It is very cool. Now I can just clip and add stuff to my blog or save just the part of a website I want to quote for a research paper. Or even e-mail something to myself. Can't wait to show this to students. It may save some paper since students doing research in the library can just print the parts of a website that they really need. I think this could be... dare I say a replacement for notecards. I am thinking about the possibilities.
This was clipped right from the clipmarks install site:

  • Email anything from a web page without ever leaving the page.
  • Print just the parts of the page you really need.
  • blog it

    Creative Commons Test

    I have been fooling around with some images on Flickr and I read a tweet this week about a site that will embed a Flickr picture on your blog and give a creative commons citation for said picture... so I thought I would try it and see what happens. I am using some photos that I found on: So far I am pretty happy with the results. I can see the picture and the attribution. I think I need to use this with my students. Nice work and site John Johnston!
