Web Annotations

I have written a great deal about the importance of annotation. It is the oldest toolkit of the reader. Annotation are also central to understanding what it means to do a “close” read.

In the spirit of my efforts to learn and document my learning on the web I now share the stream of my web annotations.

To accomplish this I am using a Chrome extension called Hypothes.is. I will do my best to share what I am reading by annotating what I am reading. Hypothesis allows me to curate my reads, my annotations and share them out to the world. Best of all it is a non-profit company built on open web standards.

The one caveat, and I am trying to develop a workflow: mobile. I do most of my reading the web on mobile browsers. For now if I find a piece in my rss worthy of annotation I will save it for later, open it on a browser, and annotate away.
