I’ve noticed that Bloomberg Businessweek’s Jealousy List for 2020 has quirky little animated drolleries racing around on it as you scroll up and down the page.

This makes me wonder what web designers and developers would put on their own personal jealousy lists for 2020. What types of features and functionality have you seen this year that you’d love to have on your own website or in your own projects?

  1. I love the highlighting, annotation, and bookmarking features of Hypothes.is, but desperately wish I had more direct access to own this sort of data on my own website in a more straightforward manner. (I’ve already got a PESOS method, specifically I wish I had a POSSE method.)

    This is something I’ve too thought about with Hypothes.is. On an annotation level it appears tricky to do, but things look more tenable when you go one step above annotations.

    Hypothes.is allows you to create page notes – annotations on the page level. So, technically speaking, you could write a blog post on your own site, grab the Markdown, and push it into Hypothes.is as a page note. Would it be redundant for longer posts? Sure, but I think it could work for smaller ones where you are generally replying to a piece of content rather than annotating passages.

    This is something I’ll try out starting with this post. (view page note)

    1. I’m curious why you’d do this as a page note rather than by highlighting/annotating the particular thing you’re replying to or commenting on? You’re already doing it manually, you may as well take the extra step, right?

      In the end, you’re still doing the thing manually. I suppose by using the idea of POSSE, I intended that the action would/should be automated so that it just happens on being published.

      Typically I look at page notes as overall things unrelated to specific portions of the text. I’ve also noted before that some users are utilizing Hypothes.is as a bookmark tool by using page notes.
