MMMMmmm Yummy Bookmarks
I am a big fan of bookmarks. I have them all over the house and they consist of everything from (unused) Kleenex to bill envelopes to sticky notes to pens. So naturally I was excited to use them on my computer!
I played around with it and bookmarked sites I visit frequently such as BPL and OPL and my work related sites such as the absence reporter, library page and workshop listing. I used simple tags such as libraries and work stuff. I did look at several interesting sites under "popular tags" such as humour and photography but didn't find anything I wanted to bookmark.
The idea of Del.icio.us is a great one. So great, in fact, that I have already got similar function on my computer already. I don't think that I will continue to use Del.icio.us, but not because there is anything wrong with it. It is instead a repeat of what I already have with my favorites list (I use folders to "tag" similar items). Had I found it first, I may have preferred it.
