Digital Tools I Wish Existed

Article note: Oof, yes, so much. IMO, Google Reader was the closest ever to exist, but the very fact that it was murdered by a single vendor because it interfered with advertising and "curation" rendered it a non-solution even before it died. I have a self-hosted substitute rigged with TinyTinyRSS and Wordpress and such, but the ecosystem isn't even close. As the article notes, it's not a new need, Vannevar Bush was on this idea by 1945 with the Memex, but it's not good for commercial exploitation, so we never get it.
