A Portal

It would be great if my Clippings weren't just photoshopped screencaps--what if instead, they were big, square, dynamic windows into the site or scan being referenced?

Two-pixel white border, my crop--but clickable, and draggable, and zoomable too. Something worth being called a portal. It can be done I'm sure, so why haven't I seen it? Or really, seen any crop interfaces at all?

Soon, people will interact with crops of the web everyday, as their computers will be in their pockets. The iPhone, and soon Web Clip are a good first stab at the problem. So for-sure, second-gen crop interfaces are worth devoting some cycles to.
