M-m-m-m-m-m del.icio.us!!

Here's something to whet your appetite! del.icio.us is a free online "Social bookmarking" site. Perhaps some of you may have heard of other online bookmarking services such as Backflip or Furl. What makes del.icio.us especially yummy? Anyone can browse del.icio.us and see what others find interesting.

del.icio.us will:
* Keep links to your favorite articles, blogs, music, restaurant reviews, and more on del.icio.us and access them from any computer on the web.
* Share favorites with friends, family, and colleagues.
* Discover new things. Everything on del.icio.us is someone's favorite - they've already done the work of finding it. Explore and enjoy.

From the website:
Joshua Schachter created del.icio.us in 2003 as a hobby and an informal way to tag and share Web pages between friends. From that point on, del.icio.us rapidly grew into the social bookmarking service it is today, and in 2005 officially became a company - del.icio.us, Inc.

In December of 2005, Yahoo! acquired del.icio.us and pledged to provide the company with the resources, support, and room it needs to continue growing the service and community.

  1. Hi, Charlene, thanks for the Furl mention! You might be interested in taking another look at Furl. Those features you like are all there: (1) you can keep links to anything on the web there, (2) you can easily share these with your friends, family, and colleagues, and (3) there are a ton of different ways to discover new and interesting resources. In addition to these yummy (yes!) features, on Furl.net you can save the full-text of the web pages you are interested in, which gives you an easy way to find and re-find useful info, even if the site has gone down or changed the page or moved it behind a costwall. I can't emphasize enough how compellingly useful it is to be able to search across the internal content of the page and not just its title. Moreover, you can search across the full set of publicly saved URLs, which gives you quite interesting results.

    In any event, enjoy your explorations of these great social bookmarking tools!
