New Feature: Showing Delicious Activity


I've added a new feature on the right hand side column: a box showing the last 5 bookmarks I've made on del.icio.us. I ran across Jeff Veen's tutorial on putting Delicious on your blog. Since I already use Feedsplitter, this only took a few minutes to set up. What I'm doing isn't the most efficient way to do things since every homepage hit results in multiple calls to Feedsplitter (one for forum comments and one for Del.icio.us), but its more loosely coupled than generating a file and then including it. Loose coupling often requires a tradeoff of efficiency. The benefit is that later I don't have to remember as much about how all this hooks together when I change something--it will likely just keep working. I've experienced this kind of serendipidous flexibility before and its nice.
