The only edits made to the lists above were:

  • Exclusion of duplicate links (including links to comments within a blog post that was already bookmarked)
  • Additional note about a blog by written by a national radio program
  • Changed description and link to Tim O’Reilly’s blog in general, which is not all about the inaguration, to his “Inauguration Moments and Links” blog post

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.

  1. So, we have a plan with 4 people on it, and I was wondering how much it would cost to upgrade to an iPhone 3G S for just one phone. Is there any way that just that phone could have the data plan?
