WHY?

The first assumption is that once you have located useful information on the Internet, you will probably want to note the address (URL) of the information for easy future access.

One simple way to do this is with bookmarking. The second assumption is that diplomats often work on many different PC (Office PC, Home PC, Laptop, etc...) and therefore have different bookmarks on every computer. The bookmarks are generally (or should be) a very selected list of websites which are essential for the daily work of the user.

WHAT IT DOES

Delicious is a online  service that allows registered users to tag, save, manage and share bookmarks of relevant web sites.
Using Delicious, a service which stores the bookmarks on a shared server, it is easy to have a single set of bookmarks kept in sync between all of your computers. Even if you do not use your PC, you can access your bookmarks on the Delicious website.
If you want, you can also easily share your bookmarks and you can exchange suggestions with your colleagues.

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

In order to use delicious, which is a free service, you only need to register. The bookmarks that will be saved and can be tagged for easy classification and retrieval. By adding a number of different tags to the same bookmark, you can include that bookmark into several collections of topics  with one click. For instance, a page tagged with “UN,” “Protocol,”,”Treaty,”and “internet” will show up in your collection for each of these four topics, even though the other resources in these collections may be completely different from each other.

WHERE YOU CAN FIND IT

Delicious can be setup for free at the site: http://delicious.com
