Getting to Pocket Inbox Zero — This Could be Better — Medium
"Pocket is a fiendishly addictive metagame for reading that helps you read more than you normally would. But the game makes it difficult to engage deeply with text, and distracts from Pocket’s potential to be a tool not only for consumption, but also for creation.



Imagine a Pocket, where, at the moment of deep engagement, you can quickly highlight a section and leave a note to your future self explaining why that part is important? Or a Pocket that looked at how everyone across the platform interacted with the text and used this data to display a heatmap of highlighted sections? A Pocket that let you peek at what other readers have scribbled and published into their public digital margins?

Imagine a Pocket that fully embraced its role not only as a tool for consumption, but a platform for creating new knowledge?

Pocket, evolved, would be a garden where you could harvest ideas from different texts, bring them into tension with each other, and then graft them into your own original contribution to a debate."

A Whole Lotta Nothing: SendTab: a great simple app for managing screens
"Sendtab is a pretty simple thing, you just click a bookmarklet or copy a URL to an iOS app and you can save a URL to your pile to view later on other devices… Why is this useful? For me, I can move anything interesting from my iPhone to my desktop computer and view it hours later. I've also got a GoogleTV attached to my living room TV so when someone points out an hour long lecture worth watching or a hilarious YouTube video I want to show my family, I save those to SendTab as well, pulling them up on my TV via GoogleTV's home screen bookmarks.

I know Instapaper is a good app for tracking articles among many devices, and Boxee enables you to "watch later" any video you find online, but I find SendTab is a nice simple silo for tossing everything interesting I want to check out on some other device. It's also handy for "I'm going out the door to the airport and want to keep reading that NYT article I'm halfway through" by letting you send links to specific named devices."
