In January, when we wrote the post Share your links with Unclutterer, we made the incorrect assumption that everyone knew about del.icio.us and how to use it. Since that time, we have received numerous e-mails asking us to explain what del.icio.us is and how to use it.
Del.icio.us is a website that allows you to:
Keep links to your favorite articles, blogs, music, reviews, recipes, and more, and access them from any computer on the web. Share favorites with friends, family, coworkers, and the del.icio.us community. [And] Discover new things. Everything on del.icio.us is someone’s favorite — they’ve already done the work of finding it. So del.icio.us is full of bookmarks about technology, entertainment, useful information, and more.
Most importantly, del.icio.us takes away the need to print out websites you’re afraid you’ll never find again. Instead of printing and then filing the paper, just save the URL to your del.icio.us folder and tag it so that you’ll easily find the website again.
To set up a del.icio.us account, go to the How to get started with del.icio.us page and follow the instructions. Then, if you come across a site that you think would be great for an Unclutterer post or Unitasker Wednesday column, mark it “for:unclutterer” (without the quotes). We’ll receive a copy of the link and your description to view.
