It’s still hip to use web 2.0 styled badges. If you have ever wanted your own badge but didn’t think you had the photoshop skills, your in luck. Web20Badges is a web 2.0 styled badge generator with an assortment of templates to choose from. Users can type in the text they want to appear on the badge, select a font from a drop-down list and configure the font size as well as the color. You can even determine the angle in which the text is displayed although, the text never seems to look right with an angle applied. Once you are finished, you can right-click and save the badge to your desktop and then claim it as your own. If you want the ultimate ability to create your own badge without the generator, WEB20Badges does provide the PSD files for most if not all of the badge templates.

Check out some of these examples.

Gistr Aims To Help You Get The “Gist”

A new website has emerged that promises to help users get the “Gist” of interesting papers. Gistr allows users to share their own “GIST” to a particular paper. One paper can have as many “GISTS” as the reader thinks is appropriate while also allowing the “GIST” to be tagged.

The design of Gistr is quite frankly, non existent, however, Gistr will be adding features in the future that will enable users to save off gists and perhaps will enable bibliographies to be created based on those groups of gists. By using similar tags, researchers should have an easier time not only sharing gists, but locating each other across the network.

Sounds like a neat idea to me. I suggest the creators of Gistr use a number of those Web 2.0 generators which can be found at the bottom of this site and apply some of those effects onto Gistr or else no one is going to take them seriously!
