I want to share a new information hunting technique I learned this week.
I'm sure you know about Twitter, the 140 char microblogging service. I just found a new way to organize and find the tweets that you're interested in: paper.li. It actually launched a couple months ago, but it was only in the past week that someone showed me a clever way to use it.
I didn't think it very useful when it launched because Paper.li was being pitched as a daily newspaper. Twitter is of the moment, and it didn't make much sense to get a day's tweets the next morning. But then Mike Cane made a daily paper based on the Twitter tag #ePrdctn.
I like it because it helps me find the tags that are only rarely posted on Twitter. Okay, #ePrdctn is fairly active, but I have a half dozen that get used maybe twice a day. Now I don't have to remember to search for the tags; I can just check paper.li.
