New toys

On Kathryn‘s advice I’ve been playing with some new tools. I added Apture via a plugin, and I must say I do like it. It makes it easy to add extra media to text-driven blog posts. I’ll keep it on for a while and see how it goes.

Next to test is Thomson-Reuters’ OpenCalais. It seems to do pretty much the same thing but in a different way.

What do you think of the addition of popup style links in prior posts, be it Flickr, YouTube or Wikipedia?

I might also start playing around with NowPublic.com, perhaps during my trip to Georgia.

  1. Hi Gavin,

    Thanks for the great blog post and glad to see that you’re using Apture. I’m just curious, what sort of feedback have you gotten from your readers regarding the Apture windows? We typically get feedback from Apture publishers, so its nice to hear what the Apture viewer community thinks as well. Also, if you have any questions about the tool, feel free to get in touch! Look forward to hearing from you.

    Cheers,
