Quickly Noted: Quick Hits
Tons of really cool links and news stories come across my desk and, unfortunately, I haven’t been able to pass them along to you all in any easy fashion.
Today that changes. I’ve incorporated another item onto the right navigation bar called Quick Hits. Clicking on Quick Hits will send you directly to a del.icio.us account under the name jimmyjaz. Under that link will be the three latest things that I’ve posted to the account. Things posted there include any stories that I might be posting on in the future, items that I find interesting but not quite post-worthy, reports that have just come out or information about upcoming events.
For those of you unaware of what del.icio.us is, here is a description from the About page on their website:
del.icio.us is a social bookmarking website — the primary use of del.icio.us is to store your bookmarks online, which allows you to access the same bookmarks from any computer and add bookmarks from anywhere, too. On del.icio.us, you can use tags to organize and remember your bookmarks, which is a much more flexible system than folders.
You can also use del.icio.us to see the interesting links that your friends and other people bookmark, and share links with them in return. You can even browse and search del.icio.us to discover the cool and useful bookmarks that everyone else has saved — which is made easy with tags.
My links will be available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, so if you see something that interests you but find that it’s scrolled off, or are just looking for something to read, head over to my del.icio.us page and take a look around.
UPDATE: After playing around with my del.icio.us page for a while, I’ve kind of fallen in love. It’s like my Resources page, only, well, better. To wit, I’ve decided to junk the Resources page and move everything to del.icio.us. I’ll update my About page explaining the change. My apologies if I break anybody’s bookmarks.
