Pundit: Empowering Web Annotation for Researchers and Beyond

The Italian company Net7 has been developing, since 2011, the web annotation tool Pundit. Pundit helps users, in particular researchers and scholars, to create annotations, that is, to easily and effectively "take notes" on web documents like HTML pages and PDF files

Many people on the web, including researchers, students, and everyday users, often face three key challenges. They struggle to:

  • Gather important information from the web by taking notes
  • Find a single place to keep and manage these notes
  • Make these notes more structured and easy to reuse.
