UPDATE: As of 2015 the GiveAlink project has been archived and the website is no longer operational. Link analysis algorithms leverage hyperlinks created by authors as semantic endorsements between pages, while social bookmarks provide a way to leverage annotations by information consumers as a source of information about pages. This project explores a novel approach that is a synergy of the two: soliciting annotations from users about the content of pages, in a way that implicitly forms networks of relationships between and among resources and tags. These socially generated relationships are then aggregated to build bottom-up, global semantic similarity networks. Strategic collaborations to share data, accelerate evaluation, and maximize impact are under way with key groups in Europe through the TAGora Project and its partners at Rome Sapienza, Sony Paris, the ISI Foundation in Torino, and the BibSonomy group at Kassel University.

The search engine also supports keyword search and the results can be personalized based on the user's submitted bookmark files. In addition, users can view, organize, augment their bookmarks online, as well as download their bookmark files to several computers. All of the (anonymized) data at GiveALink is available online to other researchers and Internet users. GiveALink uses the existing hierarchical structure in bookmark files (folders and subfolders), as well as collaborative filtering techniques, to measure similarity between Web pages.

StumbleUpon - The One True Simple Way to Organize Your Online Reading Ever heard of StumbleUpon? It’s been around for quite some time (you can Google it if you are truly an information freak) and, according to my humble opinion, StumbleUpon’s value is underestimated by everyone. Also Read: StumbleUpon for Business: An Introduction The site defines itself as is the easiest way to find cool new websites, videos, photos and images from across the Web. Many consider StumbleUpon to be a “social network” and although I can understand why, I mean it does connect people and information, well, I’m still not so keen to jump on that grenade, even after taking into consideration the platform’s long term existence. What StumbleUpon basically offers is content discovery: in Layman’s terms, a place to “stumble” on information. You might want to try it out – it operates under the same fundamentals of a classic social network, such as Facebook, or rather, Pinterest, where you, instead of pinning pictures, are stumbling likes, pages and information.

Twine / An open-source tool for telling interactive, nonlinear stories A delicious bookmarklet that works with noscript This is technical, so unless you’re a do-it-yourself programming/javascript geek, you will not find it interesting. I was trying to solve this problem: I like to bookmark interesting links on my accountI like to use NoScript with my firefox – this disables javascript/flash/ads/XSS and other things on a lot of sites, giving me a much more stable experience on various websites. Unfortunately, both of these things don’t really go well together. NoScript blocks the delicious bookmarklet, and at this time there doesn’t seem to be a any easy way to get it to work as it is. I tried adding to the Anti-XSS Protection Exceptions in NoScript preferences but that did not help. Of course, I can always copy the URL of the site, go to and then add the link manually, but that is too much effort. After some trial-and-error I decided that the problem was the use of iframes in the delicious bookmarklet. Here is the code for the bookmarklet:
