Evernote. I was saddened yesterday to hear what turned out to be rumor only, that Yahoo was shutting down the service.
Today, the Delicious Blog suggests they will seek a buyer for the service.
Meanwhile, Evernote, having previously disabled the Delicious import I used when I transitioned, published a new method for importing from Delicious.
My only regret about not using Delicious was that I was no longer participating in a community. There was a social aspect of sharing your bookmarks in public. When you searched Delicious, you could tell how many others had posted the same bookmark--effectively a recommendation.
When you found someone who bookmarked on a topic you liked, you could see all their bookmarks on that topic. I found a lot of gems doing that.
Of course I could still get that information after moving my bookmarks, but was no longer participating in building that group wisdom. I felt a little guilty about it.
Of course, I was always mindful any bookmark I posted to Delicious was accessible to anyone. People could learn a lot about my interests, politics, concerns and other details about my life.
I hope they find a buyer. I hope that buyer finds a way to integrate and perhaps sync my bookmarks in Evernote that I don't mind being public, to their database so I can again participate.
