What is MarkaBoo?

MarkaBoo is a web-based social bookmarking tool. As an experiment in open-source business models, tglo is opening up the code under a Creative Commons license to the developer community. We believe that profitability and freedom are compatible ideals and that the offspring of that marriage will be a better product.

MarkaBoo’s Features

Here are a few of MarkaBoo’s features:

  • Bookmark urls, notes and files
  • Create bookmarks via email
  • Create bookmarks via MMS-capable mobile phones
  • Commenting/annotation system
  • WYSIWYG editing mode (via FCKEditor)
  • Import from del.icio.us, ma.gnolia, or your favorite browser
  • Atom feed support
  • VoIP support (requires the free tglo CentComm download)

Getting Involved

Working on the tglo MarkaBoo project gives developers an opportunity to shape the direction and feature set of a real, for-profit product. It’s a great way to cut your teeth using Ruby on Rails, the hottest web framework around. Additionally, we may offer bounties for large pieces of functionality.


tglo guarantees basic accounts will always be free, and is absorbing all the hardware and bandwidth costs. Our only revenue stream is from a small, non-intrusive Google Adsense placement on every page.
