Yahoo's retort to my previous post

|

A day after I posted about Google's personalized search launch, I now find myself demo-ing Yahoo's "My Web 2.0 BETA"* (the logo for which tips its hat to the Flickr folks).

In terms of features, Yahoo's response is to see Google's personalization + search history and add in social bookmarking (del.icio.us-like) and social networks (Yahoo 360). This is an impressive array of functionality, but does an impressive feature list make for an impressive experience? Review in the extended.

Gettin' del.icio.us

|

I've slightly updated the right sidebar of the site to use del.icio.us to manage my bookmarks more. del.icio.us is a site the manages your bookmarks for you (similar to blogroll). You visit a site, click on a button, and the site is added to your del.icio.us list. They'll even publish your list as RSS if you like.

What makes del.icio.us different from blogrolling is that it lets you tag entries, which makes a lot more sense than organizing your bookmarks hierarchically. This way, I can have a Jython link sit in both my "Python" and "Java" subsets.

This is part of my overarching scheme to push all Web-related content off of my desktop and back onto the Web, where it belongs. One of the things that frustrates me is that when I sitdown at a new computer, none of my bookmarks are there for me to use. Now, I have a semi-organized system that should eliminate this problem, and breaks down my bookmarks by task:
- daily news reads: bloglines
- sites to follow up on/sidebar: blogrolling
- filing cabinet for bookmarks/older links/links less frequently used: del.icio.us
- bookmark annotations/bookmark search: kwc.org/blog
