Abstract
(EN)
A method and apparatus to create a "diary" containing multimedia references to web sites that a user has visited. These references (also called "content objects" or "objects") can be addresses of, for example, text, bookmarks, images, programs, movies, etc. Many content objects are provided via the Web sites of "content providers," with the specific intent of making the content objects available to a user to place in his diary. The name "diary" arises because the invention preferably allows the user to save these references in association with dates and/or times. The pages of a user's diary may be navigated like a book, moving forward and backward through the pages or jumping to a particular page. In addition to storing references to Web information, the user can also jot down reminders, enter appointments, and birthdays, etc. for dates. A user is allowed to choose a visual "theme" for the pages of his diary. This theme can be changed at any time by the user and reflects how the user wants to present himself and his diary to the world. The user can set various levels of privacy for different portions of his diary. Entries on a diary page can be moved or copied within a diary page or moved or copied to different diary pages.
