Matias was at the Sanger Institute during his PhD, so many of you will know him already. He has since combined his interests in computational biology and development for Apple operating systems, and I know that lots of you already use Papers.
Safari 5, the Apple web browser, was released today. It is available for Mac (obviously) and Windows. All well and good – faster, better support for HTML5, possibility to search Bing, etc. Oh, and we now have the Safari Developer Program, which allows you to create extensions for the browser, like you can for Firefox. Nice.
Something my colleague pointed out to me, and which looks rather exciting, is the Notes extension from Panic Software.
This would allow you to annotate a web page, and send a snapshot by email, thus sharing your notes. Could be nice for working together on projects…
Annotation and notes in the Coda Notes demo from Panic Software. Send notes as a "postcard"... Nice!
