Memex is your new web-research assistant to effortlessly organise your digital knowledge. 1) Instantly find websites again - without the need to do any organisation upfront. Just search with any word of any website you visited or bookmarked and filter by visit time, its domain or the tags you gave it. 2) Share links to specific pieces of text of any article with anybody: http://memex.link/S1zVMgKzX/en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Memex 3) SOON: Make annotations and add comments to any website 4) SOON: Organise websites, annotations and comments into collections you can publish or co-curate with others. Enjoy your regained productivity :)"
