22- Teach someone
So I taught a loved one how to set up and use a del.icio.us account, rather than rss feeds which I had suggested. He really didn't need much instruction as a lot is self-explanatory, and understood the concept of tags placing a url in to different categories, so it was accessible from more than one "folder." I think he will probably import his bookmarks from work and home in to it. I also showed him the private/public aspect of it, and had forgotten the default was public public, unless you set it up to give the private choice. I did actually quickly show him rss feeds with bloglines and LibraryThing which he also seemed quite taken with. We also looked at the Los Gatos Library which has a LibraryThing account.
