In the past few weeks a great thing has happened here at memit: we’ve had an influx of new users of a very special kind – naturally born Powerusers. Users, who have all seen the great potential in clipping great stuff from around the web and saving it for later use in the cloud. Users, who’ve built up online huge collections of articles, pictures, pdfs and movies etc., but have suddenly found their old home – Clipboard.com, a service similar to memit – shut down.
Here’s what happened. A little over a month ago Clipboard was sold, and users were given until today, June 30., 2013, to export their clips and try to make sense of them somewhere else. To our great delight, memit has turned out to be as fantastic a Clipboard alternative as we hoped it would be! But don’t take our word for it. You should listen to what ex-Clipboarders themselves are saying. Here’s a few: One of the first ex-Clipboarders to find memit was Naomi Bianca Morton from the London office of Isobar – one of the world’s leading media agencies. On her blog she wrote:
“Clipboard have been bought by Salesforce, who decided to shut the service down. I’m distraught. memit, however, have swooped in and made everything better.”
And she continued:
“We’ll be using the Isobar Nowlab Mem It to archive everything we see and present….We’ve sorted them into ‘collections’ to make it easier to find things, and Mem It have a handy tag cloud to help you narrow things down.”
Later on Naomi imported all of Isobar’s Clipboard clips to memit. She now has a total of 735 mems, which you can see on the Isobar Nowlab Mem It page.
Suzanne Moore is another ex-Clipboarder. The first thing we heard from Suzanne after signing up was this comment on memit:
“I LOVE your clipper!… So far you’re getting an A+ from me.”
Part of the thread on memit, where Suzanne praises memit (Jan Futtrup is our CEO) Then Suzanne, a self-proclaimed “Certified Horse Nut”, went ahead and imported her entire Clipboard archive. The next day she was still thrilled:
“Can’t believe my Clipboard stuff is already live AND the tile view! Still A+ with me.”
Suzanne also took her view to Twitter, where she’s known as @MorganLver. Here she went a step futher:
“I LOVE your service! Your clipper is AWESOME.”
Complete with capital letters and exclamation marks! We were blushing! You can have a look at Suzanne’s mems right here.
Also other ex-Clipboarders took to Twitter to express their feelings. From Italy Illuminato Butindaro (here are his mems) chipped in:
“@growsmarter Thank you very much! Memit is a good alternative to #Clipboard.”
The news also spread to Cyprus, where ex-clipboarder @AndreasCY had this reaction: From the Netherlands Roland Wijmenga put it in Dutch: or simply:
“It looks good!”
