Bookmarking Apps and the Wish Economy
Diana Kimball on Medium has a very thoughtful essay: Save for Later: Bookmarking Apps and the Wish Economy. “The Bookmark represents what we wish for. It’s the earliest indicator of intention, and the most vulnerable; by definition, the act of saving something for later means that whatever we hope for hasn’t happened yet. Bookmarks are placeholders for the future. By thumbing through them, we can start to see what might happen next.” Also she wrote this entire essay and never once used the word “curate”.
