Zimilate Online Content Curation

Zimilate - this is what it is:
https://www.zimilate.com/
Free content curation / clipping / something or other / service.

Uses a bookmarklet from the browser or email address from a mobile to save pages, notes, etc.

What is the advantage over using, Postach?
No load on Evernote sync server Clips the whole page rather than a description and a link
Disadvantages?  No back up - it’s all on someone else’s server. 
Alternatives? The 'read later' function from Instapaper https://www.instapaper.com clips web pages 
Pinboard https://pinboard.in  users can bookmark everything there and because it is a paid account (lifetime account for one payment) it may be more reliable that say, Delicious or Diigolet - maybe.

Zimilate was brought to my attention by Robin Good of

Podio Project Management and CRM and Bottle Opener

Podio
The title tag says "Project Management Software, CRM, Sales, Intranet - thousands of apps - Podio"
The strap line says "Citrix Podio is the new way for more than 400,000 teams to communicate, organize and get work done in one customizable place."
Citrix acquired Podio back in 2012.
Within workspaces, teams use apps:

Postach.io

Postach is interesting. You can create a site on a subdomain.

You sign up to it and connect your Evernote account. That creates a folder on your Evernote account.

Then, when you add a note to that folder in Evernote and tag it with 'publish', it creates a post on your subdomain.

So it's not database driven like WordPress. It's a static site that updates from your Evernote folder. That is, it updates from the sync'd Evernote folder, not your local application.

There are a number of different themes - some nice-looking ones. And you can play with the CSS if you want.

And it's free, with the option to sign up for a premium account that gives you the option to have more people join in on a collective account. It might be a nice idea for a business that wants various members to add posts. They don't need to log in to the site - all they have to do is create posts on their own Evernote application, tag is with 'publish', and sync.

I can't think of any…

Young Deer

I photographed this deer along with others at a wildlife park about two years ago.
It's nice the way its thick coat stops at the top of its legs.
 I don't know much about deer coats when they are young - or old for that matter.
But the way it sits on the deer and just 'ends' rather than covering it further down its legs makes me think of it as though it is 'wearing' it. 
It makes me think of an American Indian or a Norseman or someone wearing it.
