I think about all the links I've lost over the years, forgetting to backup my bookmarks when moving from an old system to a new system or reinstalling the OS. OH the bookmarks I've lost - I finally quit wasting my time. I don't add bookmarks to IE or Firefox anymore. I had given up.
THEN Matt E. showed me the answer and now I have discovered del.icio.us (yes, i know - where have i been) and it is del.icio.us. Now I am able. And I haven't begun to discuss the community aspects of this system, the relationships. The new sites I have found. And yet its so basic, so utterly simple, yet so useful.
The 'Bookmarks' / 'Favorites' menu in the browsers are AWFUL and haven't changed since 1995. Firefox tried to make it better by making them RSS aware, but that was a failed attempt IMHO. Let's hope they can glean some knowledge from from del.icio.us and raise the bar somehow.
Now if someone could figure out how to tie del.icio.us together with my browser (aside from the obvious) we'd really have a good solution.
Where and what are my links you ask? -> del.icio.us/j.monty
