My workflow for exporting my reading highlights, and how I publish those highlights to my personal website.
The limit I see with this is that it does not provide an obvious means of referencing the various links in other posts. Although it is possible to use fragmentions to link to a particular part of the text, mentions are listed against the whole text itself. The alternative might be Hypothesis, but then you lose reference to webmentions.
My solution has been to record each link as its own bookmark and then collate these. Therefore, I am able to easily link to a specific URL, while also providing a summary.
I have thought about removing the posts from my URL, but for now I just let it be.
These tools are created and maintained by the Hypothesis community. Some are code experiments, some are full implementations being adopted by users every day. If you have a project or know of one that should be listed here, please let us know!
So it felt like a good time to take a quick peek at a few common design patterns and think about some ways forward.
Ideally they’d want to have webmentions work in two places. It would be great if they could send webmentions of annotations/highlights to the original page itself, so that the site owner is aware that their content is being marked up or used in this manner.
I really must dig in, as I can see this being a replacement for Diigo, which I have progressively moved away from this year. Although Press Forward might offer some of this functionality too.
Not every source link warrants this treatment. When a citation refers to a specific context in a source, though, it’s really helpful to send the reader directly to that context. It can be time-consuming to follow a set of direct links to see cited passages in context. Why not collapse them into the article from which they are cited? That’s what HypothesisFootnotes does. The scattered contexts defined by a set of Hypothesis direct links are assembled into a package of footnotes within the article. Readers can still visit those contexts, of course, but since time is short and attention is scarce, it’s helpful to collapse them into an included summary.
