Saturday, March 29, 2008 bookmarks migration completed

I'm happy to announce this minor task finally completed: my bookmarks are now fully migrated to my Delicious account. More precisely, they have been imported to Delicious in late 2006 and what I really just completed is the initial tagging and cleaning. That never been high on my priority list, but it's a good thing done.

Here's the previous blog post on my bookmarks and my page explaining the whole thing.

Keeping Found Things Found

I just started reading William Jones' Keeping Found Things Found. I admit buying this book solely on Peter Morville's recommendation. I'm confident this will be an interesting read. Quote for the first chapter:
"Where is the Life we have lost in living? Where is the wisdom we have lost in knowledge? Where is the knowledge we have lost in information? -- T.S. Elliot (1888-1965)"

Related, I've been pleased with Kimiz Dalkir's Knowledge Management I read last year, another book I feel comfortable to recommend, though I understand the topic is a little (but just a little) less universal than personal information management.
