Freelish.us an alternative to Del.icio.us bookmarks plus microblogging

Freelish.us logo

The people from StatusNet have released freelish.us, intended to be a social bookmarking site to replace the almost dead del.icio.us. And I say intended because its more than that. Its actually a modified instance of the status.net microblogging software, so you can use it as you use identi.ca or twitter, but tags, links, images and videos get displayed differently than on the default versions, making it the perfect mix between microblogging and social bookmarking. You get all the benefits of the social and federated microblogging platform, like groups, tags and threaded conversations with your bookmarks.

You can import bookmarks from del.icio.us and there’s a bookmarklet so you can save any site quickly from your browser. The best part, is that you can also use Emacs Identica-mode with Freelish.us to save your bookmarks from Emacs!

I hope that these changes also make it to identi.ca to make it even more awesome than it is now.
