Share your links (’cause that’s how the Web works)

Part of the benefit of the ill-named Web 2.0 shift is that

  1. the read-only web can now be both read and written (wikis, personal blogs, YouTube etc.)
  2. a great deal of its strength comes from networks and shared resources

Here’s one that’s easy to learn, use and share:, the link tagging service

  1. Get a account
  2. Use the Flock browser (which I’m loving) or the Firefox plug-in to make tagging your favorite sites easier. (Preachers: this is a great way to mark those tidbits for future sermons.)
  3. Share your favorite links with your friends. Better than those awkward “I’m your cat with a dead mouse/look what I found” emails. Yes, you may share with me; my user name is boyinthebands. (Of course.) And thank you.
  4. Start searching by tags instead of always going to Google. I find great pre-vetted resources that way.
  5. Or perhaps you keep seeing a user’s name. I have a doppleganger and love his links. If the account is public, you can read all of your favorite user’s links in an RSS reader, like Google Reader.

Enjoy your new productivity/obsession.
