I am a big fan of internet technologies that allow me to centralize my information on the web, rather then on a specific computer. This is because I have had computers need to be completely reformatted more then once, without an adequate backup, and lost valuable information. Also, because, like many others, I am computing from many different locations on different workstations.
One tool I’ve found that I like is the Unbound Bible. While there are many bibles available online, what sets this one apart is its ability to save your own notes to passages you have been studying. This is something that I have been looking for. Again, many desktop Bible programs allow you to type in your own notes. But again, you are bound to that desktop or laptop.
The only potential drawback that concerns me with unbound bible is I do not know yet if I can make a personal backup or if I am at the mercy of Biola. In order for us to make the transition from the desktop to the web in productivity, there needs to be mechanisms for backing up at both levels so that our data is secure. Otherwise we have traded one problem for another.
Check out the site. I think it could be very useful.
