del.icio.us and Doppleganger

Table of Content

There's a snazzy tool that everyone but me seems to use: del.icio.us. It allows you to bookmark pages, store them on a remote server, pull them up from another browser (thus making your office more portable) and share them with others. By seeing what others link to, you find new resources. That's neat.

del.icio.us recently was bought by Yahoo!, so I'm also giving the very similiar de.lirio.us a spin.

When I populate my account with my favorites, I'll link it from the sidebar.

In the mean time, I have found a blog whose links so closely match my own interests that I found it eerie.

  1. Scott – Are you familiar with DIGG? It too is an up and coming Web 2.0 phenomenon. I wonder which big company will toss a huge amount of money at its creators? Yahoo!, Google, AOL, and Microsoft all seem to be trying to buy as many web apps as they can.

    Regarding the eerie similarities between you and andersoj … “spooky.” Did you peruse his “currently reading” list? I’ve been reading your blog long enough to see a correlation there! 🙂

  2. Shawn, no I’m not familiar. But I smell a hint of hype when I hear of “Web 2.0” so I usually take a wait-and-see attitude.
