You may find yourself asking some questions when you come to this blog, questions like “Why am I here again?” and “Where are the pictures of the scantily-clad cheerleaders that are pretty much the only reason to visit this, since this guy knows next to nothing about sports?”
Those questions do not have answers, and I’d appreciate you keeping them to yourself. Also, we’ll get to the cheerleaders in another post.
Another question you may have is “Where does the incredibly handsome, cool author of this blog keep all this information that he then talks about on this well-written, informatively funny site?”
Yeah: Maybe you should have started with that one, to get us off on the right foot.
The answer to that question is: “Yes, I am very handsome, thank you.” And also: I am constantly reading online about various topics of interest to me: Not just sports but politics and books and culture and science and Star Wars and things that talk about Star Wars and people that talk about people that talk about Star Wars and things that are tired of all the Star Wars talk… I’m starting to see why I never get anything done.
And until now, I have not had an easy way to organize that information – I have notes and bookmarks and emails and a jumbled collection of thoughts that amounts to “Star Wars… cheerleaders… whah?”
But then I found clipix.
Clipix is a new site to help me organize information and keep it handy, and then to easily share things with other people. It lets me save websites and share them with one or two clicks, and the minute I figured out how great it was, I signed up. (Even signup was easy: I used my Twitter account (you can use Facebook, too) and it was literally a two-click process, after which all I had to do was drag a button to my browser bar, at which point I could surf the web and take reminders with just another click or two.
Here’s how it works: I find an article, say, about how Bradying is a new thing, and I click the “Clip” button to open a little panel:
Asking me which clipboard I’d like to add this to. I have a sports folder, where I can save it and find it later, or even share it with others through this thing they have called “Syncboards” which let you and your friends or family “clip collaboratively,” adding clips to the clipboard for everyone to see, while anything THEY add, you can see. There’s also “Multiboards,” which groups your clipboards so you can have all your blog clippings in one article.
Clipix is great for publishers and group workers – you could have all your buddies online and clip an article and EVERYONE could make fun of Tom Brady all at once. It was stuff like that which made me sign up. You should too. I mean, what else could you useClipix for? (Seriously: If I’ve missed a use, tell me in the comments.)
