For the longest time, I have used Instapaper as a way to stash away stories that I find but can’t address immediately.
If it’s something that I want to bookmark permanently without going through Twitter, I’ll use Diigo directly.
But I’ve always had a need for that something in between. It may be a story that I want to spend some time with before I decide how to handle it. It might be an interesting new application that I need to work my way through before the final determination.
To address this need, I stash things away in my Instapaper account. Like any good connected service these days, it runs through the web but also has an app for major devices like Android, iOS, and Kindle.
Recently, Instapaper has had a major overhaul in appearance that also results in what I’m finding easier navigation through the thngs in this digital nether world that I’ve created. True to its name, it does look more like paper but the navigation options along the left really reinforce the concept of instant.
The technique has served me well. But I’m always open to new ideas. Do you have a better way to store things temporarily for later consideration? If so, I’d love to hear about it.
