Found and Favourited - Links you might Like

Where are your favourites stored? On a device or in the cloud?  Whittaker likes cloud-based Diigo, so that's the first favourite link to share today:- 

The fact that there's an android app (PowerNote) which syncs with Diigo is of course a powerful incentive to use it all the more.

Evernote is another useful tool, to keep track of all manner of action-lists and memos:-

But let's get back to those favourites.  Whittaker's recent Diigo links include these:-

  • Burns Scotland - (does what it says, authoritatively and without kitschy tartan gimmickry)
  • Book Riot - a blog about books -
  • Scottish Music Centre - Opportunities and Competitions page:-
  • Khan Academy - have you heard about 'Flipping the classroom'?  Online teaching using YouTube and student-led learning, as advocated by Salman Khan:-  (The Whittaker Library is buying Khan's book - we'll tell you when it arrives.)
  • Fresh on the Net - share your tracks here!  Tom Robinson tells you about the scheme here:-
  • "This blog grew up out of a radio show called BBC Introducing: Fresh On The Net (read more) which I hosted on BBC 6 Music from October 2007 to April 2012.  Through the show I encountered many gifted individuals who shared my enthusiasm for new music and a dozen of them have now joined me here online under the name Team Freshnet. Our mission remains the same: to promote independent music making in all it forms – and to connect listeners with new music and musicians with new listeners."
