Workflow: Netnewswire article into nvALT for later reading and Markdown annotation

I often prefer to have long reads in plain text so that I can annotate using markdown, add custom tags within the file, or add personal notes.

This simple workflow in Keyboard Maestro takes highlighted text from NetNewsWIre into nvALT with an associated link and prepends @read- to the title.

The core of this workflow is shift-command-v” which is the nvALT: new note with selection” Service.

For articles with graphs or images that I would like to see when I finally read the article, I use Instapaper. This is a well-known, superbly written, well-designed app / service with excellent functionality and a beautiful UI.
