I was never much interested in this Web 2.0[?] thing and community sites. However, in IS MU there has been recently implemented a bookmarking system similar to del.icio.us, including tagging and other features. I found it easy to use this for keeping info about articles I want to read some time in the future (bookmark, tag, and forget). It is definitely better than my previous approach of keeping such "to read" articles as open tabs in Galeon.
There is also an added bonus of seeing other users' public bookmarks
to find something interesting. Hopefully there will be a RSS interface
too. For now, you can see my bookmarks (loosely) related to Linux
or all my bookmarks at
I think it is different from
del.icio.us in the user base -
bookmarks can be added by authenticated users only, who are related to
Masaryk University. Also the users of a (public) bookmark are publicly visible,
which should probably reduce spam.
