I am a relatively recent obsessive (user name: alisonbf). EchoDitto sends out their new bookmarks every day and I think it's a damn fine idea, so I'm going to try to do it too. (Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery?) It's not my effort to share the newest, coolest thing. It's my effort to share what I'm thinking about, reading and learning every day.

Here's what I saved today (a busy day):

i use it too, for work, but it's easy to get lost kind of quickly. i utilize about 50 tags, but a lot of my entries need to be changed to "not shared" because i use them for semi-confidential research purposes.

now i'm a newly converted Bloglines user, because my job has made it necessary for me to track the general movements of a handful of blog communities. are you using an aggregator yet? i'm still trying to figure out if it's made my life easier (i think so) or if it's just made me an even more efficient addict (i'm quite sure).

Yeah, I used Bloglines and now I use Google Reader. It wasn't that I didn't like Bloglines, but I read something about a new version of Google Reader, checked it out and stuck with it. With Bloglines I wasn't using the folders, but I am with Google because it's so easy to do so.

The thing about (besides being as annoying to type as -ISM(N) was) is that I like looking at what other people on my team at work are tagging because, inevitably, they are finding things that I am interested in. Plus, I was pretty utilitarian (still am) with bookmarks: a "cool" web site or article didn't hack it, my online bank account or Netflix did.
