Del.icio.us Finally Gets Some Respect from Yahoo – ReadWriteWeb

Some query types we can imagine being made possible by this integration are:

I do a news search for a topic like the Textron buy-out or golfer Ross Fisher two hot search terms today and BOSS + Delicious shows me which URLs in my list of search results have been tagged “analysis” the most, or “biography.”

Search an index of food blogs for recipes and tell me which of them have been bookmarked the most and have been tagged “Mediterranean” and “vegetarian.” The words Mediterranean and vegetarian may not appear anywhere in the text of the recipe, but human readers can recognize the recipe as fitting into both those categories and tag it as such when bookmarking it.

Look up the links that my blog commenters post along with their comments and show me the top tags that other people have used to categorize those links. Perhaps, more marketers than engineers commented on my last blog post. I’d like to know that. Perhaps, I’ve had an influx of teachers, preachers or veterinarians commenting on my blog lately. Who wouldn’t want to see that kind of data?
