Hook 3.2 Show HN Hacker News (Ycombinator)

Earlier this week, we released Hook 3.2 (see release notes). Show HN allows users to post their own work, so I went ahead and shared it there on Ycombinator’s Hacker News.

Hook 3.2 exec summary

per release notes :

  • New commands: Copy Selection and Link (⌃Q) (Hook Pro) and Open All Hooked Items (⌃⇧O); ⌃H to invoke Hook, and a preference to choose your own Hook folder.
  • iCloud syncing, for compatibility with Hook’s upcoming companion app for iPhone and iPad.
  • Automatically add web bookmarks to Instapaper and GoodLinks (v. 1.3.1) for Hook Pro users.
  • New integrations: Merlin Project, GoodLinks, Notion and Zoom.
  • Improved integrations: Fantastical & Apple Books.

Hacker News

The Hacker News article contains a brief product description.

I also added some context and history. Context wise:

the Seth Godin article I referred to was Mode switching | Seth’s Blog Godin. David Sparks has a similar concept, “contextual computing”. Linking and Contextual Computing — MacSparky

The history relates to work we did at SFU on gStudy and nStudy ( Learning Kit project).

Also some notes about the Manifesto for Ubiquitous Linking, article on Research Gate. More on that soon.
