I have been using the social bookmarking tool Delicious for a number of years I have close to 400 links saved so today when I read that Yahoo the owner of Delicious are going to close down the service I was not a happy camper. Thankfully I did not keep all my eggs I mean links in one basket.
I had synced my Delicious links to another service called Diigo. This means when Delicious is no more I wont have lots any of my links.
If you use Delicious then you will need to start looking at an alternative source for your links. If you want to try Diigo I have posted the link below. Also "ThenextWeb" blog as also posted a useful post providing information on 6 alternative services.
When not engrossed reading a good book on my kindle, watching science fiction, singing with the Cappella Singers or looking for new apps for my Iphone or Ipad l also trawl through the Internet and post useful articles on my Blog. I welcome your thoughtful contributions or questions. I mainly hangout on Google+ where I find a nice level of engagement and plenty of interesting posts. I also use Twitter and Facebook. For video conversations I use Skype but am actively looking for an alternative. I am still amazed at what you can do on the Internet and where it's possible I enjoy being an early adopter.
I am a Secular Humanist and passionate supporter of Social Justice issues and can be found on Google+ in heated but respectful debate on these and many other topics. When reading I enjoy Science Fiction, Fantasy and History as well as good smattering of Politics. If I had to choose a hero a word that is often over used I would say Carl Sagan. So that's me if you want to know more just drop me a line via my Contact Page or through the social media sites I have mentioned.
I have recently become a Co-Manager of a Google+ support page called Oasis in the Stream If you are new to Google+ or want to learn more about it and other Google products please pop on over and join the discussion.
