Flinch and you’ll be chasing your head down Fifth Street! Joe Friday. He had a way with words. Not that Bill Gannon didn’t. He just seemed to have sandwiches on his mind a lot of the time. Back to Joe. Suppose I need to quote Joe in a pinch? And, really, who doesn’t need to rely on Joe every now and then to make a point or two? How can I keep track of all those great Websites devoted to Joe or to quotations? Book ’em, Danno. Or, in the words of a tech savvy, Steve McGarrett, Social bookmark ’em.
Social bookmarking lets you save, organize, and share bookmarks of Web resources. I have used Delicious for a few years now, but I have upgraded to Diigo. And, I do believe it is an upgrade. With Diigo, you can bookmark, highlight text, mark items to read later, and add sticky notes. And, importing Delicious bookmarks is a snap. Additionally, the Diigo Educator account allows you to create accounts for the students in your class and automatically sets your class up as a group.
How do I feel about social bookmarking. Oh, yeah, I dig, Mister. Just like Bill and his garlic-nut-butter sandwich.
