Delicious shall live on in our hearts…

17 Dec

…and also, apparently, at delicious.com.

Contrary to the soul-shaking news going around the web yesterday, it seems that Yahoo! plans to sell, rather than end, social bookmarking service Delicious. While this is good news, it’s still something of a cautionary tale for those of us who use such services either personally or professionally: build it like it’ll last forever, but always know where the export option lives.

I wrote a bit more on this over at the SLA Academic Division blog.
