I am browsing http://del.icio.us these days.. It is great way to find interesting information over the net. I think I’ll prefer it over the google..
But there is an interesting observation here.. Most of the recently bookmarked pages by people are on the same topic.. Like these days “AJAX” is highly searched/bookmarked technology on the del.icio.us and in the programming front, just by looking at the http://del.icio.us/popular/programming , how popular programming language “Ruby” is becoming..
So can there be some program which automatically monitors/crawls such social bookmarking sites and then picks up future trends.. Identifying “future trends” is the biggest quest for marketers and thus correctly identifying such trends can be a great boon for marketing people and money-spinning device of program writer..
The future is trend hunting.. 🙂
