Firstly customise the bookmarklet to your needs and save it to your links bar.
Click the bookmarklet when you are on a page, and you won’t even notice it has been recorded into your del.icio.us account (according to the specs you customised).
Go to your del.icio.us account to see the new entry with automated tags (magic).
Some people think it isn’t a good idea…leads to generic or homogeneous “dominant tags”, reducing the longtail…I guess lazy!
There is a fine line concerning effectiveness, between convenience, automation, and laziness…it is essential to analyse and evaluate how this convenience contributes or what it takes away from the social alchemy that is del.icio.us.
From this insightful post:
“When I note that this article is about “tagging” and “cognition”, I am explicitly informing myself that I am currently interested in “tagging” and “cognition”. So the process helps me keeps my bookmarks, and tells me a little about myself everytime.
At the social level, the moment I post to del.icio.us, I can see if there are others who are interested in the same article. If so, did they use the same tags? I can see how others think similarly and differently, and also see the long tail of idiosyncratic tags.”
