Weekly Links Post (experiment)
The following is something I’m experimenting with. I’ve been pretty interested in workflows lately and I’m trying to get a little more out of bookmarking. The ability to create a summary post at preset time intervals based on a particular tag is something Diigo offers. I’m hoping that taking advantages of some of these bells and whistles will help me come to like Diigo.
After using Diigo for a few months, I still don’t like it. For instance, their bookmarklet loads, then pauses and adds something that makes me hit the wrong button about 30% of the time. I’m also not a fan of the way they embed ads. I miss Delicious Classic like people missed Coke after the debacle that was New Coke. After the Yahoo abandonment I hung on because I’d always preferred the simplicity. Eventually, the poor performance of the remixed Delicious literally forced me to leave. Way too often bookmarking a page resulted in having to hit refresh before I could interact with it again. That’s impressively dysfunctional. The subsequent loss of link rolls and other basic functionality eventually resulted in my move to Diigo.
My current setup is supposed to mirror Diigo to Delicious which then feeds my Pinboard account. So if Delicious ever stops actively breaking things, I’m prepared to return. It may be that Pinboard is the path but I haven’t messed with it enough.
