Farewell del.icio.us you were truly great

Looks like Yahoo is closing down del.icio.us I just exported my bookmarks, but that means that I’ll have them on one machine but not the others, and keeping the several machines I use on a regular basis will be more of a pain.

Anyhow it looks like there are a few alternatives out there that I’ll have to investigate which give me something else to do over the holiday.

Is it really going to save a huge amount of money for Yahoo, compared to the pain that it’ll cause the users and the bad publicity for them. I’ve already heard that several people ruminating about the long term future for flickr – I’ll not be buying a flickr pro account in the near future.

Warren Ellis has some more on the story.
