About this Add-on
All notes are kept on your computer in your Firefox profile. You can back up your notes to our server hosted at MIT.
list-it can also be used as an tool for human computer interface researchers to study the in-situ use of personal note taking tools. It is instrumented to provide high fidelity activity logging and aggregation/uploading of use data, which can be enabled if desired. These fine-grained timestamped logs of when and where actions were taken (note creation, edit, and access) so can then be studied later to understand note taking practice.
Our team consists of Max Van Kleek, Greg Vargas, Michael Bernstein and Katrina Panovich, and our PIs are Prof. David Karger and monica (mc) schraefel.
list-it is a collaboration with the University of Southampton and the Nokia Research Center, and is supported by the Web Science Research Initiative and the The National Science Foundation.

This add-on is not compatible with your version of Firefox because of the following:
To create your own collections, you must have a Mozilla Add-ons account.
If the user chooses to use our free Note Synchronization service, two types of information will be sent to our servers: the notes that they create, and their usage logs, containing information pertaining to when you accessed, created, modified and deleted particular notes. These usage logs are used to recover old note revisions. Both types of information are transmitted in encrypted form.
We make sure that the server is kept reasonably secure. However, we wish to emphasize that USE OF THIS SERVICE IS AT THE USER'S OWN RISK. We are making the service available on a best-effort basis, and are not liable if notes are accidentally lost or compromised.
Notes that Float - A new feature which will soon be introduced to List-It makes use of the user's location and web pages they are view while accessing notes to later predict when notes will be relevant. For this to work, List-It saves two types of additional information: salted-hashed fingerprints of accessed web pages AND identities of physical locations visited by the user (identified by WiFi). Note that because these are one-way hashed with a salt kept securely in the client, only the client can identify when they're re-visitng a place or site they've visited in the past. It is impossible for the research team (or anyone) who has access to these logs to recover what pages or physical locations the user was at due to this one-way hash.
Notes for Science- If users volunteer for our user study (by agreeing to the terms presented to them), they give the research team permission to analyze the above collected data for note-taking research. The terms of the study are fully outlined in http://listit.csail.mit.edu/study/
Information removal/withdrawal - If at any time a user wishes you wish us to delete some/all traces of you from our servers they can email us at listit@csail dot mit dot edu.
