But it might be worth looking at how Nancy White has been doing this. See her recent post about Second Wave Adoption and her follow-up post on Time to Experiment. She lets folks know to use the del.icio.us tag "2ndWave" and then you can look at the list of links that she and others have collected.
The nice thing about doing it this way is that you have those list of links available to you later. Why is that important? Well how many of us will actually go through and read the links right now? With del.icio.us (and better yet Yahoo MyWeb), you can go back and find them later. Ever had the experience of going back and searching for the list of links?
Of course, the question is whether people will adopt this. Any thoughts?
