I can add links to my site remotely with a text editor just fine, thanks, so I've not much use for the thing. But what a lovely FQDN they have! I'm en.vio.us!

(Actually, I'm not, somebody at dweeb.net is, but still...)

Incidentally, Delicious was created by Joshua Schachter, creator of Memepool and GeoURL.

i'm not sure how pro's do it, but i seem to have no trouble. solution without problem, or a vast leap forward in making blogging more accessible for the AOL set?

Looks vaguely related to JS's previous reversible.org (which has gone away).

The good thing about it is that it's you get a bookmarklet to quickly add a link. It fetches the url and page title for you, and all you need to do is edit the title if necessary and add category tags if you want, and then hit save.

Looks like it good be an ok tool, but right now, being pre-alpha-alpha, it's quite crude. The "subscribe" feature looks like it could have potential, but it's way too early to say.

I know it's really, really early -- but I'm already annoyed about not being able to group things in subcategories (like Canada/Government, for example).

Hmm...a multi-user linkdump; the javascript is nice, though it seems it yearns to be something more, a community weblog, wiki or chump, perhaps.
