Bring it on!

Tagcamp opened its doors tonight and even though I only got there after the presentations it’s been quite worth the drive up.

I enjoyed some very good conversations with Stowe, David, Marnie, Marshall, Justin and Kimbro.

Some of the tools we looked at, played with, and talked about:

blummy

blummy is a tool for quick access to your favorite web services via your bookmark toolbar. It consists of small widgets, called blummlets, which make use of Javascript to provide rich functionality (such as bookmarklets).

Fagan Finder

Fagan Finder is a website designed as a tool, to help people find things, and it is meant to be a gateway to the Internet, a quality home page. Compare this to several websites. Like a search engine, we have searching capability, but we have many different searches. Like an exclusive directory, we include searching to or links only to high quality websites. Like a guide, we try to help you in your search experience.

ElfURL

Welcome to elfURL, where we make giant URLs shorter. Some say our elves make the smallest URLs around. Our URLs are not ‘tiny’ but they certainly are small. Why use our elves? They provide free stats, rel-tags and del.icio.us tags – that’s why!

del.icio.us

del.icio.us is a social bookmarks manager. It allows you to easily add sites you like to your personal collection of links, to categorize those sites with keywords, and to share your collection not only between your own browsers and machines, but also with others.

I’ve been using del.icio.us since June 2005 (in its most basic form). At WikiSym 2005, I came across a more sophisticated usage, which I shared tonight: tag voting and “tag time warping”. Tonight, I learned how to actually make tag bundles.
