Web 2.0 Bookmarking

One of those presenting at Demo '08 is iterasi.

Their product is a bookmarking facility that can handle the dynamic, AJAX-based nature of Web 2.0 sites.

You know the sort of thing I mean: you go to Google Maps, enter an address, drag the map around, zoom in a bit ... and then try to bookmark the page you're seeing.

Sadly, because the URL hasn't changed, all you end up with is a link to the front page.

Enter iterasi ... when you click on its button, the current state of that website is stored, for later retrieval from any web browser via your account at iterasi.

You may say that Google Maps has its own way to bookmark things, but I much prefer learning one mechanism than a new one for every site. Obviously, whether it's of any real value will depend on whether iterasi makes its product free, or at least reasonably priced.

It's not yet available to the public, but they're blogging about it and here's a video to whet your appetite ...
