Hi everybody πŸ‘‹ I built QuickNote mostly for fun and to learn the Serverless architecture. However, I actually found myself using it more and more so I decided to open it to the public. πŸ“ My main pain point was that of sharing quick notes with people online (like links, images, snippets of text) but not wanting to create a Google Doc or EverNote note and change the sharing settings. πŸ†“ In short, QuickNote allows anybody to create a quick note and share it online. No signup, no payment, no sharing configurations. Nothing. Just go to https://quicknote.io, create your note (add images, videos, bullet points, etc) and share it with the world in a few seconds. πŸ‘€ Here are some examples: * Code sharing: https://quicknote.io/56d8a010-c2... * With image: https://quicknote.io/f1e02010-c2... * Simple text with links: https://quicknote.io/55e80910-c2... PS: Shout out to the fine people at WIP who made me change my mind about using the original name "OneNote"! Enjoy πŸ˜„ and let me know if you have any question or feedback!

@mnlfrgr Great job Manuel. Might be good if you already had some Demo links with already filled content to get an overview of how it looks πŸ˜„

@deadcoder0904 Thanks Akshay, that's a great idea. I'm adding links now!
Wow - super useful for customer support! I can imagine using the same OneNote over and over in support chat to answer simple questions like this - https://quicknote.io/6cfafb30-c3...

@travisleestreet hey buddy, that's a GREAT use case! πŸ˜ƒ
@travisleestreet Didn't even think of that. Great use case.
This is cool. I'm curious to know how you plan to handle illegal or malicious content. What if someone posts a note that violates a copyright? Or that threatens someone? How can you manage that? Do you keep track of all notes that get published? Do you have a policy for deleting certain types of content?

@cm0nt0y4 brings up a good point. It seems @mnlfrgr needs to add some legal disclaimers to the site, outlining terms of use. In those disclaimers he can discuss what gets content pulled down, acceptable use, and so forth. For long term policing in real-time the content users post to be sure they're conforming to his policy, he might consider using one of the many moderation APIs to filter text, images, and video for malignant content. Machine moderation APIs aren't perfect, but they're a good first line of defense until you grow to the size or sophistication justifying human mods. Just to brainstorm a bit: Azure has a machine moderation API that has a generous free tier (http://bit.ly/azure-content-mod-api) for mod'ing text, image and video. Also, Cloudinary (https://cloudinary.com/addons) makes it easy to moderate images and video with either WebPurify (https://www.webpurify.com/) or Amazon Rekognition (https://aws.amazon.com/rekognition/) add-ons for spotting nudity, profanity, violent content, copyright-protected celebrity content, or certain other things. There's a lot to unpack here. Hopefully the idea of policing user-generated content doesn't discourage @mnlfrgr from continuing to grow and nurture this fun, useful tool he created and shared here. I'll say it again... Good job, @mnlfrgr!
@cm0nt0y4 @boaticus I think I will add some legal disclaimer and an easy way to contact me to remove content, but I can't realistically implement anything real time or the involves machine learning. Do you have a template for the T&C I can use?
can be useful
