Introduction to Del.icio.us

June 12, 2007 at 9:29 am 1 comment

With the help of a blogpost by Dorine Ruter it is easy to put up a short introduction to del.icio.us, the social bookmarking site that we are using to collectively gather websites, wikis, blogs and other online resources with interesting content about knowledge management in the context of development cooperation. We have chosen delicious because it is used by a large number of people, but have found out it is not so intuitive for everyone, so if you are new to delicious, it may take some time to get used to it.

But what is social bookmarking in the first place? Social bookmarking is the practice of saving bookmarks to a public website and ‘tagging’ them with keywords, meaning you add information about the content. The tagging allows you to find your resources lateron, but also to follow other people’s resources with the same tag.  If you like to know more: here are some good starter resources.
