Delicious collapse is big Web 2.0 news

Above it my #delicious page Since Twitter has taken off I really have no been using delicious, which is sad because it was a very amazing tool for keeping you bookmarks. More than Digg, StumbleUpon, Facebook or Twitter Delicious delivered the social network to work for you, keeping your bookmarks as the primary function and the social network as a supporting function.

The striking thing about this is the danger of the Cloud. Everyone is speaking about the Cloud, but the more we put of our world in the Cloud the more vulnerable we are to the businesses that run it. In the case of Flickr and delicious the danger is pretty radical. I keep a Pipes and Delicious account, but never really got in to Flickr. My wife has massive Flickr pages and is a real guru with that tool.

But all of these products are in massive danger because their founders made the mistake of selling them to Yahoo. One morning you can wake up to find years of uploads could be gone before you know it, if Yahoo decides suddenly that preserving your links, mashups, or photos is not profitable enough anymore.

Microsoft has probably been one of the worst offenders for this, with sites like Office Live Beta and PopFly just collapsing almost over night taking any content they had with them.
