  • Goodbye del.icio.us.  It's the end of an era for both of us; me because I'm leaving you, and you because soon you won't exist (at least not in any meaningful way).

    You should have done more to hold on to engineers like joshua and deusx.

    And I still really, really hate your new bookmarklet.

    You taught me (hell, you taught most of us) the meaning of social media.  The real meaning, that is, not what you get when you google the phrase.  You took my shitty collection of Netscape bookmark files and turned them into the kind of Web site that previously had only existed in my dreams.

    You showed me that a few stream-of-consciousness words, written in plain text, and millions of non-experts, could rule the Web.  And look at us -- now we do.

    Thanks, and goodbye.  When you're gone, I swear I'll visit your Internet Archive page every year on Talk Like A Pirate Day.  Sic transit gloria.
