When you bookmark with us, we keep an archive of the page in its original form. The permamark is a point of reference forever – even if the original web page is edited or taken down.
Permamarks is a new web-based bookmarking utility that addresses a key need for anyone needing to collect and preserve "as is" any content / web page found on the web (with a date/time stamp).
Permamarks offers the opportunity to create 100% faithful copies of any web page that integrate actual content and HTML of the original and to save it forever at a dedicated URL.
One of the core objectives of digital curation is in fact one of archiving and preserving for the future any collection item. Permamarks addresses this very issue by allowing you not only to save and bookmark any web page but by also saving the full content and original display format of each.
Web pages can be saved to Permamarks either by copying and pasting a URL or by using the dedicated bookmarklet. Archived pages can be commented and organized into list/collections.
URLs of permanently saved pages cannot be changed, but can be shortened and customized for extra usability.
My comment: Permamarks addresses a need overlooked by most content curation tools available today. The challenge will be for content curators to add an extra step in their curation workflow to first file and preserve the content being curated. Integration with existing curation tools would greatly help, as the second challenge would be for the curator to decide whether to curate the original "live" or the "permanently saved" copy. Ideally, I'd see the curator referring to the original content with a parallel copy being saved and archived for future reference.
Free. Pro plans coming.
