  • Del.icio.us founder Joshua Schachter gives a demonstration of his public bookmarking service and how its underlying folksonomy not only helps people find more documents that may be of interest to them, but also connects people with common interests. The presentation was given during the panel discussion on Social Networking at MIT's September 2005 Emerging Technologies Conference. Other panelists in the session were IT.com founder Mark Cordover, dodgeball.com founder Dennis Crowley, and Nokia's user experience manager Chris Heathcote. If you haven't seen dodgeball.com, it's worth a look. Nokia seemed out of place at first. But Heathcote reminded the audience that the company's tagline is "Connecting People."
