I have started to get into delicious. It is great place to check out the bookmarks of other web surfers. On one hand it allows us to take a peek into the private/public world of another person’s view of the web, and on the other hand, it provides a way of building community.
It is this community aspect that interests me most. In the real world we consider community to be about the places that we inhabit … the cafes we frequent, the libraries, shops, halls and sporting fields we visit. Online, our communities become much larger in territory, but also more focused in their intent. And through places such as delicious, we can even find new communities that come in a new flavour that we can grow to like.
