Mozilla extension adds web annotation to Cohere

Some of you may be interested to play with the new release of our Mozilla extension for Cohere, which adds highlighting and annotation to Firefox/Flock, but with the addition of more reflective, sensemaking elements:

* Clips are highlighted text fragments (and in future video hopefully) to provide more precise link anchors and to direct visual attention

* margin notes are in fact what we call Ideas, first class objects in the system, since Ideas are first class objects in sensemaking, connected to an arbitrary no. of Clips on any no. of websites

[thus far it's just Diigo, Sidewiki, etc]

* optional user-defined classification of Ideas to show the role that they play (Question; Assumption; Prediction; etc)

* optional user defined semantic Connections between Ideas

* generation of semantic Idea webs that can be filtered by user-defined link types

We're currently analysing data and experiences from a collective intelligence experiment we ran in December, when four analysts used Cohere to make sense of media coverage of COP15 and climate change Open Educational Resources.
