Global Voices and Del.icio.us

Complementing Rebecca's Global Voices aggregator, I'd like to invite you to share links on sites you think might be useful to our conversation using del.icio.us. I'm starting a set of bookmarks and invite you do to the same, using del.icio.us, and tagging the appropriate bookmarks as “globalvoices”.

For those who haven't used it: Del.icio.us is a “social bookmark manager”. It allows you to maintain a set of bookmarks online, and to share these bookmarks with other users. Others can see what sites you've bookmarked and the categories you've classified them in. Once you've created a category – like “globalvoices” – it links to every other collection named “globalvoices” created by other del.icio.us users.

To try it out, go to del.icio.us, and create an account. Follow the instructions to add del.icio.us “bookmarklets” to yoyr web browser. Point your browser to a site germane to the Global Voices discussion. Use the “post to del.icio.us” bookmarklet to add this site to your del.icio.us bookmarks. In the “tags” field, add “globalvoices” so the rest of us will be able to find your bookmarks.

Every URl tagged as “globalvoices” is viewable from a single page – pretty empty right now, but should fill right up if we all participate.

    Actually we can also find some interesting links by putting “countryname”
    and “blog” together, e.g., http://del.icio.us/tag/china+blog, comes a snapshot
    of China’s blog…
