  • Toluu sharing the feeds you read and discovering new ones.




Produced content

Sharing refined content

To do

  • Should I only add what Im using on what I tried and dislike or what I should try?
    • Ex : Digg could be added to "General recommendation engines"
    • EX : StumbleUpon could be added to "Personalized recommendation engines"
  • Study how AGPL tools (Wish list and actual list) could fit in the picture
  • Integrate personal research on Personal Internet Memory alias PIM
  • Try Tarpipe: Simplify Your Social Media Workflow by Frederic Lardinois by ReadWriteWeb November 10, 2008
  • Don't forget what "cannot be seen" including filters (rinse feed, adblock, ...)
  • Based on my previous work on personal information flow/steam :
    • Template :
    • Example :
  • add more suggestion engines
  • add more serendipity engines (!)
  • copy the large blocks and put them in other page for potential inclusion
    • eventually trim them thanks to the line restriction
  • xFruits Compose your information system
  • change the Content I am currently studying/Finished to an automated system
    • PageList + Category
    • synthesize the page to PTVs and use it in MyLibrary system
