A very cool Web 2.0 bookmarking Service – iterasi

I recently posted an article “What’s In Your Cloud?” about Web 2.0 and cloud computing.  If you have not read that article, I suggest that you do so.  Why?  Web 2.0 (cloud computing) services are being developed everyday and the article helps you to understand how these services or applications will work.  As a matter of fact, I am educating myself as I research many of the Web 2.0 services or cloud applications.  I am finding that there are many, many cloud apps out there right now.

One such cloud app that I recently came across, that in my opinion, is very cool.  It is called “iterasi”, a bookmarking service, that allows you to capture and save entire pages right from your browser.iterasi

Once a page is captured, it is archived in your account, in the state for which it was captured.  For example, with my current account, by using a bookmarklet tool that is provided, I can capture this page (article) to my account and keep it there as long as I want, even if this article is deleted or changed.  There is also a scheduling component built in that allows you to update the pages in your account.  Iterasi is currently in beta, but looks quite promising.  In my opinion, if you do any type of research, this is a must have tool. You can click on the graphic below to see a demo of iterasi in action.

What is iterasi? (as described on the website).

With iterasi, you can save web pages exactly as you see them in your browser. This guarantees the article, receipt, review or recipe will be what it was a day, a week or a year later. Unlike bookmarks, which capture the address of a page, iterasi captures the page itself. With bookmarks there is no guarantee the page will be what it was when you saved it – or even be there at all. We archive the page in your private account on our servers where you can search and retrieve your saved pages anytime, from anywhere, forever. You can also share what you save with friends and colleagues, and search the iterasi Community for topics of common interest.
What can I do with iterasi?

Here are some of the things you may want to save and share with iterasi:
interesting articles
market research
blog posts
online receipts
a Facebook or MySpace page
travel itineraries and vacation plans
Google map directions
recipes
Why do I need iterasi?

Web pages change very fast. Links disappear or point to something unrelated to what you thought you had saved. Pages disappear completely. Or the content changes dynamically based on a number of variables (ever try to send a link from a travel site?). So much information is lost when you just save a link. That’s why you need iterasi. With iterasi, you are saving the page as it appears to you at that point in time. Don’t lose that specific page ever again.

    Would have been nice to have had this in my college days.. but back then, a “portable computer” was the same size as a suitcase, weighed as much as said suitcase full of bricks, cost $9,000… and there were no “wireless hotspots”.

    My, how things change!

    TechPaul,

    Should have used this (iterasi) when Technibbles took down the links to the utility repair kit… I bet some of those links are still good and this would have preserved the page and those links.

    Until the link(s) is(are) replaced.. I would like to remind your readers that they can create a portable “toolkit” themselves.. using the list of programs as a guide, maybe.

    Here’s my illustrated How-To for installing programs to run from a flash drive.. for reference.
