Public vs. Private

  • by , February 12, 2007

I’ve started a new habit recently. It’s one of those things that you initially think is something you only do by yourself. Everybody does it. But often you find yourself thinking it would be a lot more fun if you had someone to share it with. And I’ve found this cool website that lets people across the World Wide Web share in the fun!

It’s called del.icio.us, and it’s my latest venture into the world of bookmark sharing. I’ll admit: I should have tried this a long time ago. But I never really saw the true benefit of online bookmarking until I purchased my new laptop.

I continually find myself darting up to the bookmarks toolbar in my favorite browser, only to realize that all of the usual hotlinks are on my browser at home, rather than right in front of me.

The answer? Keeping all of my bookmarks in an online space; a place where I can even publish them and share them with others across the web.

I’m just getting started with this service, but I feel it will really help me keep my bookmarks organized.

But what about my to-do list?

    I have to be honest, I'm struggling with this new offering, Notes From The Digital Frontier, for a number of reasons.
    First and foremost being that the idea iteslf is so far behind the curve period. No less for a media publication company that's suppose to be informing and inspiring the industry. Second, the content itself that is being provided is anything but from the "frontier".
    I mean seriously, are you writing a post about a website that has been around for almost 4 years? 4 YEARS! And you came across it b/c you "just" bought a laptop?
    Sorry, but this one post alone is making me question MediaPost as an industry asset in its entirety.
