Here’s a nifty web app that I’m finding very useful as my own homepage. It’s called Protopage, and it allows you to have your own page where you can put in links to any webpage you want and create sticky notes.
All of it is done via a simple interface that you’ll grasp right away. They mention more features will be implemented (perhaps RSS feeds can be put in, further customizing of the interface, widgets even?), so it can get even neater.
You can see my page at protopage.com/mattjaybe/ (it can be made public or private, your choice.)
