Eg. As a designer, my library of UI screenshots, UX flows and articles are really valuable for me whenever I'm working on something. So having a library and finding new things is important to me.
This is our first attempt on the problem, focusing on bookmarking. We would love your feedback. We're currently working on Delicious importer, developer API and mobile version. If you're interested testing them out, hit us an email firstname.lastname@example.org

Here is my story.
I used to have delicious account long ago (close to 30000). Because Yahoo shut it down, I have to move. I used a ruby script to auto submit to google bookmark. It took me three days. After that I thought everything will be fine. However, I define tagging a lot, google bookmark can't do heavy sorting (it always crash my browser).
Then when I found evernote, I like the way they have app for iPad and Android phone. However, right now they also have tagging sorting problem. Currently I have 7212 bookmark in Evernote, 2341 tags. You can imagine the browser basically freeze to wait for the loading.
Tagging/hashtag is very important to me. I rarely use google to do research because I always look back to my tag first.
Right now we store the page content so you can do a full text search on title, notes and the content.
Human's memory is limited. However, human can remember a paper/article's attribute/catalog which is been defined long ago. I use bookmarking service for so long. My experience is...in the end if people have a huge bookmark contents just like me, filter/tag/hashtag is way faster than search. If people don't define tag, they will just use google search for Webpage content, no need to use bookmarking service.
Knowing how to do the tagging and bookmarking is the key, after that, google search is no need.
I might bookmark it and tag it as "Web-App-Bookmarking". So after a while if I want to do a comparison on bookmarking service, I can just pull this tag, I can see a list on every bookmarking service. However, if I just do the keyword search, and that I might already forgot "kippt", I will end up probe so many bookmarking related articles which might contain other stuff.
Tagging is just like filtering. It can direct narrow down search list. Tag complexity and various could lead to more accurate contents and its potentially others.
Google bookmarks has always been able to import from Delicious. It still works even after the crappy Avos rewrite.
