Old School Bookmarking

August 17th, 2012 by Brian Leave a reply »

I was looking through our cabinets to find something to help our school secretaries organize receipts when I came across this hilarity. A previous librarian had written out hundreds of Rolodex cards for pertinent websites. What makes me laugh is that, to use this system, you would need to know the name of the website. This is definitely before Googling became a part of our cultural mindset, because if Lycos is in here, there were search engines around. (Does anyone even use Lycos anymore? I know that they tried to re-brand themselves in an AOL/Yahoo way with games and community pages.)

Needless to say, I’m thankful for delicious.com, catch.com, diigo.com, evernote.com…You get the idea.
