Social Bookmarking

I finally joined the social bookmarking scene.  What I want is to be able to access my bookmarks from any computer.

Digg – I hated it!  Digg has lots of flash and “hip” verbage on the website – it’s atrocious.  At a glance, I’m not interested in any of the articles others are submitting.  The emphasis is heavy on SOCIAL.  They want me to submit my site, comment on it, discuss it – bleh.  I don’t want to talk to other people, I just want a place to store my bookmarks.  I want to be in a quiet library, not Times Square.  Plus, to register my account, I had to enter age, gender, location – some heavy-handed tracking going on there.

Del.icio.us, by contrast, is quiet and serene.  Minimal information is required to register.  It installs an inoffensive toolbar with simple buttons.  It’s easy to store bookmarks, easy to view them.  It’s a winner.  My only complaint – the hard to type url.
