  • Nice background (the image, look's like that nice plant we love :-)

    This public tool is good for some professional activities, not for all.

    We have to say it clearly and identify some cases where it is applyable and cases where it is not.

    In a common business professional context there are issues about security.

    Also, in a business professional context it is desireable to have some controled vocabulary to improve relevancy.

    There are some good ideas to integrate a folksonomy with a taxonomy on professional scenarios, well worth to take a look at http://www.ifla.org/IV/ifla73/papers/157-Hayman_Lothian-en.pdf

  • Victor, thanks so much for the kind comments and suggestions of other resources. I had not yet discovered Clipmarks, and it is definitely interesting! I agree that del.icio.us has a bias toward the general audience, and Connotea is much more academic. I like both. I loaded all my bookmarks from a dozen different computers into Del.icio.us, and must confess that I have almost 7,000 links in my collection. This is mostly old stuff, but about half of it is new within the past year. Obviously, I spend too much time online. It is a little scary sometimes, but I thank God for Del.icio.us almost every day. It has made me enormously more productive!! -- Patricia

  • this a really good presentation, I wonder what I can do to express my ideas in such a clear way. I have been using del.icio.us for a while( actually I have saved 400 links) and I know that this help you a lot because it narrow our search in internet, when we look in any search engine, the first results we see are the sponsored, followed by a list of thousands of them, with del.icio.us we find the results but based on what other people saw and were interested in. But you know, as this place is feeded by the users, sometime the results are not relevant. so how to save what I see in internet. what I do is this:
    for any general web portal that contain many type or a lot information about one topic I saved it in delicious, when I read scientific publication, I used connotea( it is awesome to save the articles in this manner and then can cited them and see what others are reading) and finally when I read something interesting but that is so generic I use clipmarks ( http://www.clipmarks.com/ ) . In that way I always have the access to the right information in the right place, but what make this tools really powerful is the fact that we learn from others, what others read, what others save, after a while you can see the trends in the world. It is amazing to think that they use and apply the same concepts as pages like Hi5 and Myspace.
    bye
