Delicious has responded to all the hub-bub about them shutting down yesterday. While they have assured their users that there doesn’t need to be a mass exodus, this event has reminded me that the tools that we rely on in our daily lives can be gone at anytime. I have backed up all my bookmarks to Diigo but will continue to use Delicious going forward. Or will I? This may be just what I need to move onto a different tool. Regardless, I still think online bookmarking is the way to go. Whichever tool you use, sharing resources is the important piece here.
