Ever find yourself with just enough spare time to pop in to the Bakery, see what's new, and then have to leave without getting a chance to check out some of the neat new titles? I have. And it irritates me when I come back later and can't remember which ones I'd wanted to look at, and they're no longer showing on the overview. Or when I post a totally deletion-worthy posting with full intention of deleting shortly, and forgetting to delete it later. Then I stumble upon it weeks later and feel like a total ass.

So what I think would be nice is a flagging system which allows you to right-click (or control click for evil Mac users) an idea title, which adds the title to a list in the upper right-hand corner of the overview. Sort of a Halfbaker's to-do list.

That is all.

       Firefox plugin: Read This Page Later


       Open the interesting ones in new tabs, bookmark all tabs to a new folder.

       Hm... the first may be an option, but requires firefox. Not my preferred browser. The second is too labor intensive.

       notepad ?

       Although not as quick as a toggle flag, you could keep a "Watchlist" filter containing a list of "idea names" and add names to it whenever you want to view them later. But the whole labor intensity thing...

       Add idea page to favotites.
Read later.
Delete from favorites after.

       // The second is too labor intensive. //

       What? One click to open each new link, then select "Bookmark All Tabs", straight into a folder? How could it be any less labour intensive without digital telepathy?
