I have to ask what benefits your idea offers over something like diigo.com or even delicious.com. You present the idea slightly differently from diigo, but in the end diigo does exactly the same things, and then some (a lot more actually). I don't mean to discourage you at all, I'm just wondering what I may be missing here.

The disadvantage I see in all these services is, actually, the fact that they do more. Most people don't want to think about bookmarks, they just want an easy way to add them and then find them again. The fact that you never really have to visit the site, and that you can just click a button to bookmark things and then find them just by recalling the slightest detail is what sets historious apart, in my opinion.

However, different people will need different things. I just think there's a market there for both approaches.
