forget favorites, beyond bookmarks, try del.icio.us

I was chatting to my friend Sim? about blogs and stuff when I raised del.icio.us and he said

I looked at del.icio.us ? yet another web system of questionable value was my analysis unless you can convince me it?s worth the effort ?

That?s when I realised I didn?t get delicious until I saw a couple of screencasts about it. Specifically Charlie at This is going to be BIG! produced a screencast for integrating del.icio.us into the Firefox browser and John Udell created del.icio.us: the screencast.

Now I don?t use favorites or bookmarks anymore. If it?s important enough to keep I?d rather tag it online and be able to find it again in context. How often have you seen a link in your favorites and wondered ?what was that for?. Instead for example I now tag a page with ?howto screencast? you can even see my list of screencasting items.

  1. Hello there,

    I hope it?s OK to butt in like this (I feel a bit like a spammer – feel free to delete my comment if you want). I came across your post while looking for screencasting stuff on Technorati and wondered if you had seen my guide to del.icio.us? From the sound of it, you are already past the basic level covered by the guide, but it might help if you have to convince someone else that it?s “worth the effort”. 🙂
