Snippets 1997 - before there were blogs

Snippets Explained (Version 2)

This is one of the oldest and least reconstructed pages on my personal web site. Google found it very quickly. It was first authored in Feb 1997 (my site began @ Jan/Feb 1995, initially at the University of Minnesota).

This site was about creating quick bits of information with a simple ontology to organize their publication. It was to be a cross between the fragment oriented PIMs of the 1980s and early 1990s and the web.

I didn't have the expertise to build the right solutions, and I had other priorities. I forgot about those "snippet" pages. Until I stated messing with Ontology, fragments, keyworks ... then there are my blogs, esp. Quick Notes ...

Yeah, there's a resemblance.

Tinderbox, though, is closest to the snippets vision (though I don't use it; Quick Notes + Google is good). is interesting though. Gotta figure how to work it in to the mix...
