How to make friends and influence people (or just find good links)

Thanks again to Simon Waldman for pointing me in the direction of two great sites for storing and exchanging useful links: and Furl. The former describes itself as a "social bookmarks manager". Er, yes, of course we know what you mean by that. Thankfully, Waldman's explanation is a little clearer, highlighting the way that you "can RSS everything: the most popular, a specific tag, or another person’s bookmarks." In the latter case, you can find other people who are linking to similar things, and so begin creating useful contacts.

The site introduces me to a lovely neologism: 'folksonomy', a paper on which is ironically the most popular link. You can also read more about 'social software' here.
