Bookmarking

I’ve started properly bookmarking again, using Pinboard.

If you want to quickly see the latest things I’ve bookmarked, they are in the right hand sidebar on this blog – just below the email subscription options.

Alternatively you could look at my Pinboard page for everything I have ever bookmarked, and I also have an IFTTT recipe set up to send new bookmarks to my Twitter feed.

How does this differ to daveslist? Good question. My bookmarks are more of a firehose, just anything I find remotely interesting. There are likely to be at least five links every day.

The newsletter, on the other hand, offers the most interesting things I’ve seen recently, with commentary attached. Consider it the executive summary.

Find what I’m reading

I’m still having a couple of technical problems here getting my delicious bookmarks posted up to the blog.

Just in case this is causing you a great deal of anguish – and I completely understand if it isn’t – you can find out what stuff I think is worth reading in two places:

  • there’s my delicious page itself, which also of cause has its own feed
  • and I have just started sharing things in Google Reader, and you can find all these items on my public page – which, again, has a feed as well

Hopefully normal service will be resumed soon.

Update: This should now be fixed. The issue was, I think, with Delicious blocking access to the RSS feed – presumably they didn’t like me checking it automatically every hour to see if there was anything new there. By piping the Delicious feed through Feedburner, the problem is averted.
