Google adds tagging to search history

11/10/2005 @ 20:55 UTC

Andy Baio : Google adds tagging to search history - no social aspect yet, but I bet it's coming

jimray : Google adds bookmarking and tagging to personal search history - Not exactly intuitive, though - this needs to be a more distinct service, a la del.icio.us

plasticbag : Google Personalised Search adds tagging... - "Google has silently added a Bookmarks feature to My Search History, enabling you to quickly tag and comment any web page you’ve visited."

znarf : Google Adds Tagging [via#

Rod Begbie : Google Adds Tagging - Tag your previous searches so you can find them again. Handy, but needs a better UI (perhaps embedded into the Toolbar?). I want to be able to specify *just after doing the search* that I want to tag the resulting site, rather than having to go back in [via#

Ning.com goes live!

jkottke : Ning, a social software playground - Ning is a platform on which you can build your own social software...your own craigslist or del.icio.us. We were just talking about something like this the other day at Eyebeam, a MMORPG in which you write applications to adventure together or fight each [via]

Linkorama : Ning - Ning is a free online service (or, as we like to call it, a Playground) for building and using social applications.

erikbenson : Ning: create your own social network site - At first glance, pretty interesting! Having trouble logging in but I assume that'll be fixed soon.

Rod Begbie : Ning "Playground" - At the risk of sounding a bit "Less space than a nomad. Lame", can anyone explain to me what's so exciting about a service that lets you build hosted not-quite-as-good-as-existing social apps? [via#

cobra libre : ning - a "playground" (that is, "a field or sphere of unrestricted pleasurable activity") for "social applications" (i.e., "web apps made up of code and content that enable people to match, transact, and communicate with one another") #

Simon Willison : Ning - A social software app for building social software apps. That's so meta.

Paul Hammond : Ning | Home: Front Page - Ning is a free online service (or, as we like to call it, a Playground) for building and using social applications.

plasticbag : I remain totally weirded out by Ning, even after their relaunch as a roll your own social network service - I honestly have no idea why anyone would want this, and it makes me sad because I feel like I'm missing something quite profound. The benefit surely would be in overlapping social networks? In values in scale? I'm totally lost.

kayodeok : Google Blog Search - Find blogs on your favorite topics

jkottke : Google launches blog search - Google finally launches a blog search service. The default search is by relevance, which I'm not sure is correct, and it's pretty bare bones so far, but I'm sure that many other people will be saying so long, Technorati. (via waxy) [via]

plasticbag : Mint: A fascinating and kind of beautiful web stats package that's getting a bit of buzz - It certainly looks great - but I'm certainly not paying $30 to see if it's any good. Anyone else?

Rod Begbie : Mint - Shaun Inman's excellent webstats package gets a new lick of paint and a few functionality tweaks. Not sure it's worth the $19 upgrade fee for existing customers, but $30 a domain is still a bargain for new folks. [via#
