Social bookmarking service Delicious announced five years ago last Thursday that it had been acquired by Yahoo The first comment posted on the blog entry announcing the deal was from TechCrunch founder Michael Arrington, saying "Congratulations! Yahoo sure does get tagging I see." When I heard the news, I felt very differently.
Google has just rolled out a convenient new tool for importing your Delicious bookmarks to Google Bookmarks. The simple importer takes your Delicious login credentials (or lets you use a one-click OAuth button) and imports all your bookmarks, preserving labels or tags. Considering Google's rather broad reach as a company, the importer is likely more than just a friendly bid for more Google Bookmarks users.
It looks like your (and my) personal search engine of interesting web pages is about to go away. Yahoo hasn’t formally confirmed, but all signs point to the impending demise of delicious.com. What are we going to do with all of our bookmarks? There are several alternatives available and, if you’re like me, you’re going to have to test some of them out until you find the one that best fits how you like to save bookmarks and later search for them.
Well, we've all seen the news that the single most insane idea of the year award can go to Yahoo who are apparently going to be closing Delicious. Quite why they're not prepared to ask people to pay for access, or even to offer it to someone like the Library of Congress to take over defeats me, but clearly straightforward thinking isn't their forte else they wouldn't be taking this stupid step in the first place. So, if you want to choose a different bookmarking resource, what options are available to you? The good news is that there's quite a lot.
