my 1000th delicious link

I just made my 1000th bookmark on del.icio.us – just one year one month and one day after I joined. That’s around 3 bookmarks per day, give or take a few percentage points that aren’t worth revisiting the math anxiety that so hobbled me in my teenage years to figure out. Although I’ve been using del.icio.us since March 2006, it took me a good six months or so to really get the power of diligently finding, saving, tagging and sharing links to web content I’ve thought was interesting or useful. Nowadays, if I don’t see something come through one of the RSS feeds I subscribe to and it’s not in the main news, I probably don’t see it – unless I spot a bookmark to it in my del.icio.us network, a group of people, some I know, some I don’t, who act as a sort of hoover + filter for me. Do you find and bookmark stuff you think I might like? Let’s start...

telegraph launching readers blogs

my_telegraph_blog_small Originally uploaded by telegraph_media_group. The Daily Telegraph is set to become the first (as far as I’m aware) national UK newspaper to launch reader blogs.

Personally I think the design of the Telegraph blogs has been well executed and, from the screenshots provided of the embryonic myTelegraph, expect we’ll see more of the same. That said, I’m not sure that the ‘build a platform, invite people in, manage their participation and take on on the editorial/legal/brand exposure risks” model I often find myself questioning these days is the right direction for the Telegraph to go when aggregation and linking could achieve the most of the same results. Regardless, I’m looking forward to seeing how this particular project develops and whether any of the other UK papers follow the Telegraph into this...
