Still Pissed At Yahoo

22 Dec

You know how when you complain about something on Twitter, and then the company you’ve railed against replies?

Here’s a summary of my morning:

And afterward:

I have not taken well to the threat of Delicious closing up shop. I’m pissed at Yahoo and I directed this rage at Pinboard. I clearly didn’t read the pricing matrix for Pinboard. I thought they were trying to capitalize on the masses of users fleeing Delicious.   I’m not sure if I’m going to go with Pinboard quite yet, as I’ve heard good things about some other companies out there, but the security of knowing your bookmarks are safe has me thinking. I rely on my bookmarks at work, at home, and on my phone. Information is my currency, and it is my vocation. I really don’t see anything wrong with charging a fee if I find the service valuable. I’m just not sure what I’m going to do yet.

I owe Pinboard an apology for flying off the handle.

Yahoo can still go fuck its mom, though.
