I can't deny it - I am a digital pack rat. When I find an interesting site, I want to keep a note of the link and a factoid in some virtual piles. But that doesn't mean that I like mess. Quite the opposite. I do check back on my things as lists of reminders. And, I like to share this stuff.
To share my "finds" I used to have to save all the links with my notes. Then format them and send out an email to my mailing list. Not any more.
Happiness is my new organization. I have been tagging links in delicious since February 2007. While 2500 bookmarks may not seem like a large number, organizing and sharing them eluded me. Then, ta-dah! enter gadgets and dynamic linkrolls.
I put scripts in posts. I put them in sidebars. They work beautifully. You are looking at them. The teaching and learning entries in the sidebar are dynamic. The pages linked under the projects heading are dynamically populated.
I'm back to finding, collecting and tagging, knowing that the pages with the scripts will be neatly displaying my latest finds in that subject area. I'm much better at tagging and adding notes, now that there is a nice display of each link. Isn't technology grand?
