Read/Write Web reports that del.icio.us Plans To Become A Social Network:
I recently interviewed del.icio.us founder Joshua Schachter, who is now with Yahoo after the popular social bookmarking service was acquired last December. Joshua was recently named as top innovator of the year by MIT Technology Review Magazine. Tagging is one example of an innovation that del.icio.us pioneered (at least in its current form). Joshua told me that “del.icio.us was the first app to showcase tagging” and that now “practically everyone uses tags in the [del.icio.us] system in some form.”
I love del.icio.us and look forward to trying out the new features when they become available.
