Jamie shares a Chrome extension that beefs up bookmarks:

I just wanted to let you know that we created a free and open-source app called Dewey. It's a Chrome extension that lets you add tags and screenshots to help manage Chrome bookmarks better. It also gives you some better bookmark search tools, like letting you search tags. You can also sort bookmarks by tag, date, or title. Hope you enjoy!

Chrome Bookmarks, Foursquare Heat Maps, and Icy Driveways

Billy shares a tip for creating heat maps of your Foursquare check-ins:

Now that Google Maps no longer supports direct KML imports, we have to import that data into fusion tables to let map geeks visualise their check-in data. It's pretty simple to set up. You just need to export a KML link from Foursquare and then create a new fusion table using that link. I put together a quick post with instructions.
