I just found out how beneficial Delicious is! I am away on vacation and I am not using my regular computer. As I was browsing through Twitter I found some great resources. I went to visit them and I thought, “Man, I wish I could bookmark this on my computer.” Then the light bulb went off. I can! I went to my delicious account and saved my bookmark.

 During our first synchronous session with ECMP 455 we had a guest speaker, Chris Betcher, who talked about all the wonderful things Delicious can do. (It was an amazing session and if you feel like you need some more insight on Delicious I recommend you watch it). I became a believe in Delicious after this presentation and began using it. I started using it for all my bookmarking needs; however, I didn’t see the importance of it as I always did this from my computer. I added the tags and everything, but it seemed like just a regular bookmarking tool. It wasn’t until today that I truly found this application useful to me. After adding my bookmark I began searching around and found the wealth of knowledge on Delicious that I can use as a search engine.

I don’t have any friends yet on Delicious and would appreciate the add. My user name is kdimini. What another great way to develop a PLE / PLN!

    I have added you to my network. Please feel free to browse the links I’ve collected over the years I’ve been using Delicious. The category that’s my favourite is tools. It’s a fabulous resource and I’m so glad that the light bulb went off for you for using this tool when you’re not on your regular computer.
    Isn’t Chris Betcher just fabulous? I’ve been lucky enough to hear him talk many times now and he has become a good friend of mine. I’ve heard his “tagging” talk several times and I am still learning new things each time I hear it.
    Enjoy your graduate course with Alec – he’s a great teacher (I’m envious!)
