From Newsvine to Delicious

Submitted by Rick Eyre on July 2 2010, 12:16 pm

I have decided to deprecate the use of Newsvine as the clippings service on from 1 July 2010. Any new clippings that I bookmark from that date will be held on delicious.

The reasons include delicious' greater flexibility, configurability, wider user base, and (important) the existence of an API. Delicious is owned these days by Yahoo!, while Newsvine is part the new-media extension of old-media behemoths NBC and the Washington Post.

I'll be rolling out the delicious widgets over coming days. The Newsvine account will remain in existence (partly due to the lack of an "Export" facility) and I will link, through, my delicious account, to my most used Newsvine keywords.

For example, items on delicious tagged "cricket" can be found at, and this will include a link through to for pre-1.7.10 items.
