Recreate Google's "Share in Reader" bookmarklet
January 11, 2013 1:08 PM Subscribe
I want this:
1) highlight portion of any website, including embedded youtube, images, text, what have you.
2) click bookmarklet.
Optional step 3) a new window pops up, allowing me to add a note.
4) a subscribeable RSS feed receives a new entry, whose title is a link back to the website in step one, and whose body is the highlighted portion from step one as well as my note.
5) share RSS with friends.
Does it exist?

Back in the day, my favorite thing about Google Reader was the creativity with which people shared links using the "Note in Reader" bookmarklet. Then Google went and made Google+, abandoning the social aspect of reader. Now a bunch of former reader users have gathered at theoldreader.com, which is only missing the "note in reader" functionality that Google took away. While its creators work on scaleability and stability, this seems like a useful temporary solution, if it exists.
