So Sim? researched del.icio.us?and then blinklist.com found him. People are already trying to improve and innovate social bookmarking. Sim? will write about his experiences.
One other exciting side effect of blogs and tagging is that people with a product, service, technology, or idea can reach out to people interested in that space.
Tags can even be used by groups to bring stuff to the their attention. Pick a unique tag you all agree on and start using it with for:usernametag. This tags for two is explained on the del.icio.us blog
Further to yesterday?s post on del.icio.us David Muir pointed me to his excellent guide to del.icio.us. While it assumes your browser is Internet Explorer, it is the sort of guide I could give my mum, so I?ll forgive that. It?s a great introduction, explanation and exploration that answers the question, “why use del.icio.us?”
David is a lecturer in the Educational Computing division in the Jordanhill Campus of the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow. So it?s good to see educators making these sorts of guides available.
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.
Live 8: Bob Gendolf and friends are presenting the G8 meeting in Scotland with a plan to end poverty in Africa and stop 30,000 children dying every single day. They are staging Live 8 10 concerts, 100 artists, a million spectators, 2 billion viewers to support that message;
People could win Live 8 tickets by SMS. 2 millions TXT messages were sent for the London event.
Bob Geldof condemned profiteering when winners offered those tickets for sale on eBay. eBay initially defended the listings with spokespeople from eBay?s various international subsidiaries singing a variation of “We are allowing the tickets because we live in a free market where people can make up their own minds about what they would like to buy and sell.” Actually most eBay terms and conditions list event tickets as saleable only if they have a right to transfer.
