Weblog on the Internet and public policy, journalism, virtual community, and more from David Brake, a Canadian academic, consultant and journalist

One of the New York Times’s most emailed articles is, surprisingly, one about early 20th century music history, and in particular an archive of wax cylinders now available free online so we can all hear the kind of things our grandparents or great grandparents liked to listen to (well not my grandfather – he was strictly a classical music guy!).

While I am on the subject of new links, may I remind you that you can see a categorised selection of my bookmarks here – 529 of them now and the number is growing all the time. To see every weblog post I made tagged with “Useful web resources” click on the link above this text or just click here. My “Broadband content” category includes audio and video-related postings…


  1. Hi David, just wondering why it is that you aren’t using the very popular http://del.icio.us to keep your bookmarks? I’ve never heard of netvous.com – does it have compelling features?

    Hm, we should have a day where we all blog about the tools we use and why we prefer them over others. My vote is to make Fri Mar 31 2006 “International Utility Justification Day”. 🙂

  2. Two main original reasons:
    1) The developer of Netvouz wrote an import filter that let me get all 5000 bookmarks out of my previous bookmark tool and
    2) del.icio.us supports private bookmarks while until very recently all del.icio.us bookmarks had to be public.

    I still recommend netvouz over del.icio.us because
    1) it supports private notes on public bookmarks
    2) It supports ratings
    3) You can sort your bookmarks a bunch of different ways.

    Just try it out for yourself!
