Speciale Delicious su Download CHIP.eu

speciale Delicious su Download Chip.euIn questi giorni sono “Guest Editor” sulla versione italiana di Download Chip.eu

Il merito (o la colpa, fate voi) è del mio amico e caporedattore su varie testate Andrea Grassi, che cura questo sito-risorsa in italiano sul software e mi ha richiesto una selezione di software e utility per… ebbene sì, Delicious.com

Sul sito trovate dieci schermate di programmi per Windows, Mac e Linux (o semplicemente multipiattaforma) e alcune aggiunte per browser che ho selezionato tra le tantissime disponibili e spero aiutino a usare o sfruttare meglio il servizio di bookmarking sociale di cui così spesso parlo.
Ogni scheda ha una schermata esplicativa, una descrizione e -ovviamente- un link per il download.

Fatene buon uso!

“del.icio.us as a cms”

Here’s the translation in english of my presentation at the microcamp 2008 which took place in Milan last saturday.

Altough the most of my background material (here on nezmar.com) is in Italian I tought I could at the least make the effort to publish an english version of the slideshow I did on how to use del.icio.us’ bookmarking to manage, share and easily publish you (micro)content.
Here it is:

“del.icio.us come cms: 255 caratteri al servizio del microblogging”

Ecco le schermate mostrate durante la presentazione al microcamp2008 su come sfruttare il servizio di bookmarking sociale del.icio.us per gestire, condividere e pubblicare agilmente (micro)contenuti.
 



 

La presentazione, creata e mostrata con Google Documenti (Google Presentazioni, per l’esattezza) si può anche scaricare in formato PDF e PowerPoint.

The via: tag on del.icio.us

For me it all began last year with ydn-delicious {at} yahoogroups(.)com/msg03572.html">a message on the Yahoo! Developer Network del.icio.us mailing list. add to deliciousIn the message, thefangmonster[0] was introducing a a bookmarklet to make easier the saving of a particular tag when adding bookmarks on del.icious.

This particular tag is the “via:” one which is “intended to be a corollary to the for: tag, albeit an unofficial one”. It is in fact a totally unofficial tag[1], which nonetheless may help immensely in giving credit (whereand if credit is due) and keeping track of who your links are coming from.

some via: tagsHow does it work?

  • Anytime you save a bookmark, whether by posting or saving from another user, add one more tag, a “via:source” where “source” is the name or nick on delicious or the name of the website or author if he has no account
  • When you want to see all the links you got from a particular source you can use it as a tag.
    http://del.icio.us/nicoladagostino/via:rentzsch is an example of all the urls I got from well-known developer Jonathan ‘Wolf’ Rentzsch[2]
  • In some instances, if adopted by the users, it can even show additional info about the history of the link, as you can see I got it from my friend Nicola “koolinus” Losito and when later aqualung grabbed from me he added me as a source but also kept the original via: tag [3].

As you can see it’s a small addition that can be very useful if you’re a writer (like me) or researcher, if you are interested in the inherent “social” features of bookmarking or simply if you like to think credits (and thanks) should have their a place on del.icio.us

Notes:
[0] who I’d like to thank for the epiphany
[1] although ydn-delicious {at} yahoogroups(.)com/msg00799.html">mentioned in summer 2005 in an offhand remark by del.icio.us founder Joshua Schachter.
[2] who also has a del.icio.us account.
[3] which after all should be expected since it looks like he got the original idea to use via: tags at the beginning of 2005
