If you look at it the geeky way Scrapplet is incredible: it lets you drag and drop pieces of the web over to your canvas and create a new web page. The technology underneath is absolutely incredible... (Scoble then goes on to state that Scrapplet is great for geeks but needs refinement for the masses -- absolutely true! smr.)

Scrapplet takes portable site creation to a new level
December 22, 2008, by Don Reisinger of CNET

RadWebTech, a company that specializes in Web technologies, announced Monday that it has opened its hallmark service, Scrapplet, to the public. Scrapplet was formally in private beta.

Friday, I had the opportunity to sit down with Scrapplet's founder and view a demo of the service. In essence, Scrapplet is a blank, browser-based canvas that allows you to drag-and-drop practically anything from any Website and place it on your Scrapplet page.

Want to grab your Twitter stream and put that on the same page as your Friendfeed? With Scrapplet, that's possible. In just a few simple maneuvers, Scrapplet allows you to highlight portions of a Web page or an entire site, drag it to the Scrapplet page, and modify the design of that page to make it fit. In fact, you can resize the site, change the site's colors, and remove borders. In essence, you can create an entire Web page out of existing sites for your own consumption...

Scrapplet: Powerful Social Web Canvases That Are As Easy As Drag-And-Drop
December 22, 2008, by Jason Kincaid of TechCrunch

There are a few sites out there that let you aggregate your entire online presence into a single place, but for the most part they offer little control over the way your information is actually presented. Today sees the launch of Scrapplet, a powerful new website/platform based entirely on JavaScript that allows users to design pages combining all of this information to their liking using a WYSIWYG interface. The site also offers a dizzying array of options - so many, in fact, that the site could be used by experienced developers to create pages that go far beyond showing off your interests and favorite photos.

Facebook just got a whole lot friendlier!
September 27, 2008, by Lesley Smitheringale

"I have been using this wonderful addition to Facebook recently, called Scrapplet which has just been developed and launched by Steve Repetti.

I have always found Facebook to be a bit limiting in terms of creating and displaying photos, music, notes etc in a personal and artistic way. Everything seemed so isolated. That was until I discovered Scrapplet which is an addon for Facebook allowing users to create their own totally unique pages called scrapplets by simply dragging and dropping content from the web or using their existing media in Facebook..."
