I am not sure yet what to make of wists – visual bookmarks, yet another variant following the flickr del.icio.us trail through the mountain pile of folksonomic tag mania.

Create a wist account, load a browser bar tool, and when you are surfing and want to track a site in your “collection” (a del.icio.us task), wist offers to create an icon based on any image it can find in the page (quasi flickr-like). Slap on some tags, and see where your tags lead you. There is a friend of a friend thing there too, but I lack friends (apparently).

You end up with a collection of tagged icons representing sites you have “wisted”.

Since it syndicates, this is another one in the pack of Rip. Mix. Feed.

I am wisting but I have no idea what I am doing.

The post "Wists = flickr + del.icio.us?" was originally squeezed out of the bottom of an old rusted tube of toothpaste at CogDogBlog (http://cogdogblog.com/2005/03/wists-flickr/) on March 2, 2005.
