to paraphrase Satre…or their digital detritus, their links and pictures are heaven anyway.
Caterina kindly quoted something I said two years ago now (although it feels longer, now I am far from London, and not making web apps) about “social software”: that it’s software that is better when there are other people ‘there’, inhabiting it.
This is certainly the case with del.icio.us, and although useful as a personal linkdump and lightweight way to spool things to the web; I am really missing the other people there in my inbox.
I’d hoped it would reappear over Christmas, but Santa didn’t get my wishlist. Ah well. Hopefully Joshua had a good break and can find the time soon to fix it.
Heaven is other people, and great social software temporarily without them is purgatory.
