Interesting to mention that if you hit the "export" button right up in the top-right corner of the screen, you get a neat little window displaying your Outliner and a "Copy" button.
Hit this "Copy" button, then paste in Google Docs and voila!
I have often used Diigo to collect stuff together quickly, but regularly also paste each link into a Google doc to add annotation etc. But with Outliners I can basically collect and format in Diigo, then export the text and paste neatly into GDocs. I'll try this out to see if it helps. Thanks for the clip btw.

great read about Google Glass's social impact
 
A bird's eye view of the background to +PC Pro's review of Google Glass. I particularly like this bit:

'In a spirit of compromise, he decides to switch to a different app. “Let’s try this one!” he remarks decisively. I have no idea what “this one” is, but I guess it must be some sort of shooting game, as the next minute or so is punctuated by Tim staring into empty space and periodically saying “bang” in a low but urgent voice. After a while he momentarily seems to remember himself: “I sound like a mad person, don’t I?” he asks, in a faraway tone as if not fully understanding his own question. Then: “bang”.'
Lunch with Tim Danton is normally a jolly affair, but today he has decided to wear his Google Glass headset. Things get off to a bad start before we’ve

The oldest holiday park in Ouddorp is a lovely higgledy piggledy place with narrow lanes and a true old school holiday park vibe. Kids playground, only a 5-10 min walk to the beach. Perfect place for a holiday!
