Image via CrunchBaseOver the weekend I ran across a blogging tool called Zemanta. I'm in an experimental stage right now, trying to figure out how it all works and whether it adds or distracts from the old "Meanwhile..." blog.
It's a pretty neat little gadget. If you use Firefox, it's a simple plug-in. I believe there is also a plug-in for Internet Explorer and some other browsers. When you start to type out a new post (or edit an existing post), it suggests links, tags, pictures, and related articles to add to the post. You can use any or all of the suggestions as you see fit. It also works with certain email programs.
Check out Zemanta in action in some of my newer posts and let me know what you think. Does it add or distract?
