Cool Tools Episode 29 Podcast: Delicious
Delicious is a social bookmarking tool that allows users to bookmark interesting links for later use and to share with friends. With each bookmark, users can add descriptive tags in natural language that makes sense to them, creating a folksonomy. Delicious also lets users create a network of friends with whom they can share links and discover new articles and resources. Delicious demonstrates collaborative filtering by engaging all the people who use the service to add and tag items, revealing which Internet pages are being the most bookmarked, and how they're being described and used.
