This is one of the reasons i am getting out of the cloud. I do not trust big corporations anymore. Having all sorts of apps in the cloud, be it Gmail, Facebook, Live etc. has a price, and that price is your personal data:

Del.icio.us shutting down!

December 17th, 2010 Comments off

Learned today that del.icio.us are shutting down their services. I have used it for at least five years, and have thousands of posts.

I had a look at Sillybeans site and  decided to make a subdomain, called bookmarks.hovmand.org, and installed a new instance of WordPress here. Then I added this plugin, imported all my bookmarks and changed my theme to this so it was easier to navigate my bookmarks.

Now I have my own private bookmark manager

Latest:

Rumors are that apparently del.icio.us is not shutting down, but merely being sold off. However that does not change my mind about moving out of the cloud.
