del.icio.us Overview

I love del.icio.us!

At first, I didn't like the website. It was such a pain trying to tag websites by going back and forth between del.icio.us and the website I wanted to tag. Then, after our group assignment that we did about Mozilla Add-Ins, I downloaded the del.icio.us add-in, and it became so easy to use!

This semester, I have had used del.icio.us for mainly three different topics. I have been trying to figure out what I am doing this summer, in regards to what classes I would be taking, and if I were to apply for the Intensive Second Year Chinese Program. del.icio.us helped me get to the application and course guides easily when I needed to search for them.

I also used it a lot for my group Blog. I looked up sites relating to China and all of the places that I visited. It was very convenient because people in my group that I traveled with have websites and blogs that have pictures that I used for my own blog (with their permission). I was able to get to the specific page of the site that I wanted using the Mozilla del.icio.us Add-in.

Lastly, I used del.icio.us for my job. I work for a company in downtown Ann Arbor, called DirectIncorporation. We file trademarks and incorporate businesses. I am the only non-lawyer that files tradmarks, and I was just learning as we were assigned the del.icio.us tagging. It has helped me keep track of all the websites that I need to go to to research international classes and look up similar marks that have been previously approved. I have also been starting to tag the Secretary of State websites for certain states so that I can easily do name searches for people who want to start to incorporate. It has been very helpful and has made my job less annoying when I know exactly what website I want to go to without having to Google it, or search through my email for the link that my boss has sent me.

Overall, I have had a good experience with del.icio.us. It has helped me with school and work, and has made being online a little easier for me.
