As has been widely reported today, Yahoo is discontinuing the Delicious social bookmarking service. (UPDATE: Delicious now says that service will continue while they look for someone to buy them.)
I’ll leave the in-depth postmortem to others — but I will point out that there are any number of good options to replace Delicious (the most obvious being Pinboard).
Mac users can also import their links into many popular note-taking apps via AppleScript, and I wanted to mention that I’m hosting one such script project here:
It’s still an early version, but it does offer the added benefit of allowing you to keep your tags and date information. Give it a try — and feel free to pitch in with any improvements if you think of any (especially if you know a little AppleScript!)
Don’t use Evernote? It’s free and easy to try — but AppleScript also makes it easy to adapt the code to whatever app you’re using! And if you do, don’t forget to share it with your fellow Mac users here in our Code Library!
