I found it while perusing thru my favorite blogs...at Weblogged. Then I read more about it here and watched the tutorial. Even Creative Commons chimed in.
My first attempt ended up in the blog post below...basically because I didn't understand what was going to happen when I added the widget. Check out what happens when you mouse over "New math." That is a pretty mild example. (Make that a really mild example)
Here is a very rich Apture experience. Watch out! Once released with your click, it can be a bit overwhelming if you aren't prepared.
I am adding some terms here to see what happens when I "apture" them!
- Chihuahua dogs
- Oatmeal raisin cookies
It is in beta (so what else is new...all cute things are in beta, permanent beta).
It is free. Yes, you have to register.
Forgive me if you land on my blog for the next few days and encounter the tutorial. It pops up automatically. I'm not ready to turn it off because I'm not comfortable with exactly what I have added! i.e. I'm a tad confused...my naturally state!
And if you are not seeing anything when you mouse over...it could be the added info is blocked where you are.
O, and the meaning of my subtitle...
comes from the site itself...and a few thoughts of others that I read
Apture provides the first rich communication platform allowing publishers
and bloggers to easily turn flat pages of text into multimedia experiences
Guess we will see how it goes!
