Have you ever found a great site and saved it as a bookmark on your computer? Then the next time you needed it you weren’t at your computer and couldn’t find it. Do you go to conferences and hear of great sites and ideas and have a hard time organizing them? Do you ever feel like you don’t have time to search the internet for all the great new ideas out there? There is a solution! Diigo!!
Many people have heard of Diigo but don’t know if it really works. It is the best organizational tool for websites so far. Not only can you save and organize your bookmarks to a place where you can find them on ANY computer, you can also do some social networking and share your finds or borrow others’ finds.
