Use CopyTaste to Share Information with Friends or Colleagues

I love simple products that do one thing and do that thing well. CopyTaste is such a product. I can envision it being used frequently when two or more people are working together on a family history research project. Of course, it probably has a few thousand other uses as well.

CopyTaste is an online repository for snippets of text, pictures, and video you want to quickly share with others, anonymously or otherwise.

CopyTaste enables you to create your own private URL with the data you wish to share with your friends or colleagues. You can paste codes, tips or stories into the text editor, upload an image or a video file, or share a video link from any video streaming site. Once you have uploaded all the information you wish to share, send the link to your friends and associates.

You have the option to leave the message wide open and available for comments, or secure it with password. Every note that you save in CopyTaste is given a unique URL. For instance, this article is available at

CopyTaste works with Windows, Macintosh, Linux, and (with some limitations) with Android devices and Apple iPhones and iPads as well. The best part is that you can do all of these at once free of charge without any registration required.

There is no privacy in CopyTaste. Don’t use it for anything you want to keep secret, such as information for your lawyer or your bookie. However, it is a great way to share information with colleagues about newly-discovered census records, information found in books, the latest weather forecast, or most anything else worth sharing.

Going to propose using this for the Danville Boyle County (KY) African-American Historical Society ( There are four of us who are “clipping” online newspapers, and right now, we don’t know what the others have because they’re all stored on our own computers. This website could create a great online archive for African-American history in this county!
