Since 2011 I am member of del.icio.us. I would say I am a frequent user of it, as in this time I have collected there 8,482 links. The last link I saved was on July 4th, 2017.
Today I decided to startto declutter my browser. This implies to save some links. Then, surprise!!! Del.icio.us button on my browser did not allow me to save 🙁 Calm people! It is not the first time Del.icio.us has a problem.
What do next? of course, to research what it is going on. After some challenges, I was able to log in on my browser. I start to explore inside my account how to save my link and then I got the following message:
NEWS (for me) del.icio.us has been bought by Pinboard. According to Wikipedia this happened on June 1st. Honestly I had not idea about this. Perhaps I will dig on my emails to see if I was informed somehow….
Nevertheless, now my direct challenge is: what I will use?
Researching again, I found pocket. Apparently it is a nice tool. The following video sold it to me:
Now starting on pocket. Hopefully I can export my links from delicious! New task for my TODO list.
However all this adventure brings me back to a topic I am often think about: be aware if your life depends only of a cloud!
