yesterday at our faculty meeting, mr. wade and i were asked by ms. scheele to tell fellow teachers about delicious.
delicious is a social bookmarking site that allows you to take your web browser bookmarks with you to what ever computer you happen to be at by putting them on the web.
delicious can help you search:
you can use delicious to see what others with similar search interests have bookmarked. chances are that someone has beaten you to the web and found what you're looking for first. save yourself time: don't search google; search delicious! browse tags, browse users, browse popular and recent bookmarks. search smarter, not harder.
delicious can help you organize:
you can use tags to group links and easily and quickly locate them later.
