Who wants to build an open social bookmarking service?

January 11, 2011 in Ideas and musings, Open Data

The following post is from Jonathan Gray, Community Coordinator at the Open Knowledge Foundation.

As you may well have heard, in December there were rumours 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, 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!
