Who wants to build an open social bookmarking service?

**The following post is from [Jonathan Gray](http://jonathangray.org/), Community Coordinator at the [Open Knowledge Foundation](http://www.okfn.org).**

As you may well have heard, in December [there](http://techcrunch.com/2010/12/16/is-yahoo-shutting-down-del-icio-us/) [were](http://www.theregister.co.uk/2010/12/17/yahoo_products_axe_delicious_altavista_buzz/) [rumours](http://web.resourceshelf.com/go/resourceblog/62691) that the Delicious social bookmarking service may be discontinued. This has caused a flurry of activity in the online world to back up bookmarks and to look for alternative similar services.

Hence we’ve started a page for a new social bookmarking web service which would be [100% open](http://www.opendefinition.org/software-service/), so that anyone could use the code or the data for any purpose:


Would you like to work on this? Would you support it? Do you think it is a good idea? Do you know of similar initiatives that are out there already or underway? Got a better idea? If you have any ideas, suggestions or links, or if you’d like to volunteer to help build such a service, we’d be grateful if you could drop a note on the idea page via the link above!

  2. Hi Jonathan. See whether TagTeam suits your purposes. It’s completely open and under active development at Harvard (disclosure: under my direction). Here’s a brief intro with links to code and related resources.
