What a great idea! Building on a classic 1945 essay that predicted the rise of the Internet, among other things, a New Zealand startup has developed Trailblazer, a Chrome extension that tracks HOW you wandered across the web in your search for the perfect pasta recipe or investigation of that niggling question.
How we jump from idea to idea in our web searches is just as valuable as what we eventually found. The journey is important too, and sometimes those connections bring us additional insights.
You can sign up for the Trailblazer extension in beta form at Twingl’s site. And the Wired article linked above offers a quick overview as well.
