Posts Tagged ‘ pearltrees ’


I’m a regular reader of Econsultancy’s blog, and it was when browsing said blog that I stumbled across an article on the intriguingly named, ‘Pearltrees’.

I hopped, skipped, and jumped on over to Pearltrees and was filled with a mixture of feelings: amazement, bewildered, baffled, intrigued, and questionful(?).

According to the folks behind it, Pearltrees “let’s you organize the web your way” by ‘pearling’ your favourite sites and organising them in such a way that it creates your very own world wide web, which can be viewed, connected, and pearled by other users.

I’ve only been signed up a couple of weeks but I think I’m hooked already.

You may argue that it’s just another social bookmarking service like Delicious, Stumbleupon, or Digg, but it’s the aesthetics, the care and attention you have to put in of organising your own web that appeals to me and the many other Peartrees users.

Check it out and let me know your thoughts.
