The site’s down due to “hiccups” caused by a “power outage.” We’ll see. 24h downtime still driving me crazy.
It’s funny to read the del.icio.us: comments on the delicious blog from people suffering deprivation:
“It’s getting late, I have six sites that I need to bookmark and I don’t want to leave the computer on the entire night. What to do, what to do? No worries my del.icio.us friends, I’m staying up all night ’til the service is up and running.”
“I recently backed up my del.icio.us bookmarks and imported them to my web 2.0 on yahoo. They both work good, and I have most of my bookmarks there. Also, to keep your open bookmarks, just open up an email and send it to yourself with your links.”
How quickly we forget about the concept of browser bookmarks! Theoryette: del.icio.us was super quick to catch on b/c browser bookmarking doesn’t work, is clunky, nobody really likes it, isn’t useful, etc. Am I right? Is anyone attached to browser bookmarking? Does anyone miss it? Did anyone use it?
