http://www.viddler.com/player/93866484/Social bookmarking has been around for years, with companies like Delicious successfully creating sites where online communities collect and share links to their favorite web pages. Iterasi has come out with a slick-looking evolution of that idea, now available in private beta if you want to sign up.
Instead of just saving links, you use Iterasi to save all of the information on a page, including images and links, a process it calls “notarizing.” Log in to your Iterasi account and you can access the actual page. In the future, you’ll also be able to have the site to automatically notarize a page based on a pre-set schedule. You can also search the text within a page (which you can’t do with a screenshot image). I expect one group I know pretty well — bloggers — to start using this service to take screenshots of large web sites, like Google services or Facebook, in order to more easily keep track of feature changes.
To use Iterasi, you need to install its toolbar for Firefox or Internet Explorer. When you’re on a page you want to save, you click on the notarize button that Iterasi adds to your browser. The company also lets you embed widgets of these images onto other pages, which I may start doing on VentureBeat if I ever find a good reason to.
