Of course, Delicious isn’t the only social bookmarking tool around. Take a look at Wikipedia’s list for others. I focused on Delicious, and the “inaug09” site simply to keep the list manageable.
Also, if you consider the blog to be a social medium, there were four more social media links saved than mainstream media.
