My del.icio.us attic

I think I use the del.icio.us social bookmarking service as much as the average user. "I gotta read that later..." "I definitely gotta check this site out..." "That looks kinda neat..." I bookmark all this stuff, and what do I do with it? Nothing!

Well, that's a mild overstatement. I do occasionally search for a site within my del.icio.us tags, but this typically occurs only when I remember that I had previously bookmarked it. So, this is like putting a bunch of paraphernalia up into the attic, and afterwards, never rummaging around up there. I need someone to climb up to the attic on a regular basis, dust off a few boxes, and present me with something of interest. Why did I put them up there in the first place?

With this in mind, I'm working on a del.icio.us randomizer. Some kind of tool that will alert me in some way about the neat links I've bookmarked there.

Codename: randel

More info once it's close to being done...

Your idea of a randomizer is pretty cool. Given your interest in social bookmarking, I thought you might like to check out www.blinklist.com, a new site that we just launched recently.

Thanks for the pointer. I'll definitely check it out.
