Interesting use of the del.icio.us social bookmarking system. How come I
never thought about that? Some people including the founder Joshua Shachter
must have thought about the search potential already.

This could also lead to the introduction of new spam techniques and the
death of social bookmarks. It used to be Web pages spam, then referral
spam, then comment spam, then blog for SEO type of spam (Blogspot).
Wherever you plant some potential, spammers will kill it.

Has anybody seen the Internet command line yet? All search engines in one


Exciting stuff!
