Who can resist a trend? (not me)

I've read so much on the web about del.icio.us (yes, that's the whole address), that I had to check it out myself. Now - hooked - sigh.

I have to admit, I like the way the bookmarks are organized - they are all listed and then "tag" words you assign to each are listed to the right. What makes del.icio.us really interactive is that you can see how many people have bookmarked your same bookmarks - and you can search through their whole listings to find more interesting sites to visit.

That's sort of the downside as well. Anyone can search through your bookmarks - so forget about all your bill paying, bank & porn links. (We'll all know about your Britney Spears fetish.)

I have to admit - most of the traffic on this blog has come from my listing on del.icio.us (sadly - I'm the ONLY person who bookmarked AtC).

I don't think tons of web surfers are using the service yet - only a few people have bookmarked major sites like washingtonpost.com. Hopefully the service will grow larger. God forbid this fucker disappears ... all my new bookmarks are exclusively there.

I bookmarked ATC and I check every day!! I swear I checked yesterday but I must have not checked late enough because I missed a whole bunch of postings. Sorry about Mickey Rooney's ass.
