That's the visual that I did on gnomz.com after I read Alexandra Samuel's post about how to select tags for delicious. You see, I was having a few sleepless nights of my own. I really wanted to know why she stuck with delicious. Her answer: Delicious puts the social in social bookmarking. She offers a great list of why delicious is great as well as a list of improvements. Now, I'm lying awake wondering whether or the article on social bookmarking tools that we started over at consultantcommons should focus more on the benefits of social bookmarking for nonprofits and less on a side-by-side indepth comparison of tools. What do you think Marnie?
I read this after, of course, I had spent a lot of time reviewing and annotating all my social bookmarking links that I collected randomly on the topic. I wanted to take JOTS out for a spin based on Alan Levine's glowing review and needed to bookmark some urls I had tagged in delicious to experiment. Here's today's daily link log. And, of course, it was after I did all this that I discovered Alexandra's collection of social bookmarking links in delicious ....
UPDATE: Some reflections from Alan Levine about JOTS
In the comment section of Alan's JOTS ROCKS post, I asked him "Upon reflection, what are your thoughts about JOTS?"
I may have tempered a bit of the excitement… I would say for a basic and individual bookmark management tool Jots works great and has pretty much the features of del.icou.us. They are new and likely adding features. Jots has an open API if you do that sort of thing.
If the social aspect of it is key where you use the sheer size of people participating in tag surfing, I’d say stay in del.ico.us. It has the most in terms of “geek” factor (barebone but workable interface)
Honestly I do not spend a whole lot of time poking around- my main priority is a searchable organizer that is quick to add things.
