Using Del.icio.us

November 24th, 2004 · No Comments

Jon Udell writes about Roland Piquepaille’s use. “What Roland Piquepaille is doing here, like what I’m doing here, begins with self-interested personal information management. We categorize our own items first and foremost for our own benefit, so that we can find things more easily and so that we can better understand how new items relate to our collective works. But del.icio.us is also a social system. The tagging I do is also potentially useful to you…This will enable metadata vocabularies to converge in a decentralized way. Think ‘cornucupia of the commons’: self-interested use leads to collective abundance.”

Interesting way to think about the Memex…
