Export your bookmarks from delicious (delicious.com)

Honestly, this data should be free, and available to researchers who work on social tagging.

You should contribute your bookmarks to a public data set. http://bulk.archive.org has offered to host such data sets. Someone should build a webservice that allows you to easily share your delicious tags. If no one steps up, you can simply email me your export (turian at gmail), and I'll package up whatever I receive.

Here is a delicious data set, for those who are interested: http://arvindn.livejournal.com/116137.html

I have some other social tagging datasets in my file. Let me know if you'd like me to dig them up.

Any suggestions on where to take my bookmarks? I used delicious a lot.

I never really fell in love with delicious (partly because I could never remember where to put the dots). I have, however, found a good bit of use out of Historious lately.

StavrosK is quick to mention it (he did in another Historious thread already), but I figured I'd give some endorsement for him. I like it (and I paid for a year).

The full-text search of the bookmarks (at the time you bookmarked them) is the key feature - it really does come in handy. It's also nice that it caches the text of those links as well.

Favbot will host your Delicious bookmarks for free


Me, too. Over 10,000 links. Welcome to the cloud.

Pinboard.in seems clean and simple.

For anyone else like me who was wondering I had a couple of questions which I've found the answer to:

1. Is there a chrome addin? https://chrome.google.com/extensions/detail/lclbbneapfiaihig... 2. Is there an android browser plugin? http://thenextweb.com/apps/2010/08/25/pinboard-for-android-a...

both of those are vital to me, looks like Pinboard has them so perhaps I'll pay the signup fee..

First export your bookmarks, just in case: curl -k --user user:passwd -o backup.xml -O 'https://api.del.icio.us/v1/posts/all

Second Find a new home.

I'm using now Diigo but better look around to see which one of the different services suits you.

I wrote a quick webapp to export them for you if someone is command-line skittish...


Really sad to see Delicious go. One of my most used services :(

See http://www.shareaholic.com/services for a list of over 50 bookmarking services.

Anyone worked out how to import delicious to Firefox yet, with tags and all? If you import the HTML they give you it doesn't import tags so I have a huge bunch of untagged bookmarks :(

Funny thing. I did this minutes ago. The resulting html file was 5.5 MB. I guess that tells how much I've actually used Delicious. Sad to see it go...
