sparklines for del.icio.us

Update: and just like that, they're gone. I guess they were bogging down the del.icio.us server too much.

del.icio.us sparklines are fun. Previously, I had read a proposal to put sparklines in Wiki, but this is the first large-scale service I know of (I'm happy to hear about others) that's actually implemented them in use. If you don't know what sparklines are, you may want to read some sample pages from Tufte's upcoming book that introduce sparklines.

So far I only know how to get the sparklines to display on the del.icio.us popular page, but you can also retrieve individual sparklines for specific links by adding "img" to the del.icio.us url link. Using Josh's Chameleon as an example:

The del.icio.us url link is:

http://del.icio.us/url/c83730234c1e59226f42ccf0b882d3ae

The sparklink url is:

http://del.icio.us/url/img/c83730234c1e59226f42ccf0b882d3ae

which looks like this: sparkline

Yeah, it was down before I even got a chance to try it. Too bad.
