A Social Bookmarking Site For Us Code-Monkeys
I've recently come across yet another social bookmarking site, DZone. This site bills itself as "Fresh links for developers", and unusually for such a site, the links are actually interesting...
Of course, your mileage might vary - this site targets developer-geeks and that is obviously why it particularly appeals to me!
When I look at the most recent links, or even the most popular links, somewhere like digg, then there might be one or two I find interesting. On the other hand, there might be nothing there worth the bits. The first time I looked at the popular links on DZone about half of the titles piqued my interest. I actually clicked-through to probably ten of the linked sites. They nearly all turned out to be blog posts, of varying quality, and two of these posts were even directly applicable to my current projects at work. Half of an hour well spent, I think.
Based on this new discovery, I've just added DZone to my social bookmark links on every page. That'll be the topic for another post.
DZone is a much more focused and specialised site than Digg or Reddit. The audience will be much smaller but conversely there must be many more people interested in the specific topics that I'm likely to babble-on about.
And okay, I'll freely admit it: The purpose of this post is just to submit to DZone to see what happens!
