Alan says that he’s moved from Furl to del.icio.us and I guess that means I’m going to have to snag his new RSS feed (though it’s kicking out an error right now.) But the ironic thing is I’ve been moving away from Furl as well, but to Jots instead, not del.icio.us. Still not sure exactly why, and in all honestly, Jots does not seem to be gaining a lot of tracking if the slow increase in URLs linked is any indication. But there is something about the look of the page that just appeals to me, and something about del.icio.us’s that I bump up against. I’ve been thinking of adding the RSS to my Jots account as a link blog feed, and, actually, I just went ahead and did it. (Thanks to Alan’s Feed2JS.)
I think at some point, you just kind of latch on to what “feels” right, sometimes at the expense of a larger community. Alan is definitely tapping into the bigger database, but then again, I’ve never gone too far down the social road of these tools anyway, save the subscribe to someone else’s feed or search feed path. And maybe that’s enough. But I do know there is a whole day’s worth of thinking and writing I need to do regarding the folksonomy stuff that’s been bubbling up lately. Organization has never been my strength…
