On the really grand scale, we could build entire new tools to help us track and navigate big issues, and put in the time and effort to ensure that everything is linked there properly. Instead of building plug-ins for websites, plug-ins for browsers could pull context for whatever you’re reading. Of course, this isn’t a new idea: there are extensions or apps that show contact information in an email, fill a browser overlay with “similar sites” and other information about what you’re looking at. There’s even an extension that adds “politically progressive information” while browsing. (via We’re not going to agree | PandoDaily)
