    Hey Greg, Looking forward to your next post. All great suggestions for improvements. I’m @otterscotter, was in the vconnect #digped hangout with you on Friday. I have some basic issues about keeping Hypoth “activated.” It seems like I constantly have to click the Chrome plugin before annotating a page. Is there a reason it can’t always be “on” when I launch Chrome? I ask not because I think you should know, but because of your “role” you may have already talked with the developers about this. Also, it would be cool if it would recognize pages I’ve previously annotated when I visited them again and show the annotations on page load. Just spit balling. I need to get back with Jeremy on these and other features. Too busy. Enjoyed the hangout! Gave @actualham a ride back from the airport tonight. Good context/insight into the institute!

      Scott,

      You have to activate the plug-in each time you visit a page because you are basically putting a wrapper around the website. Hypothes.is is an annotation layer on top of the web. As of now you always have to activate a page to annotate it.
