I use my del.icio.us tags as a clip file. At first I just tagged the stories I placed for clients. Then I tagged the articles I have written.
I soon worked out that del.icio.us works as a great clip file. I often come across stories that interest me, that I want to go back and read at a later time. Tagging works great in those situations. There are also story lines I want to track, del.icio.us is ideal for that purpose. It’s great, no paper, no filing system other than the tags, and makes it easy to forward a whole group of stories with one URL.
