The social bookmarking site Delicious is back. Those who loved saving their favourite links to a public (or private) profile page will find that experience unchanged. But there's a new central focus to Delicious. It's called Stacks.
Stacks is a quick and easy way for users to compile a focused list of links to share. While there's no limitations to what your list can contain, the idea is that people will pick a theme/topic and run with it. You supply the links, Delicious takes care of the formatting and presentation for you. They believe that navigating through stacks, as opposed to navigating through personal profile, will make exploration and discovery on the internet much more meaningful.
According to AllThingsD, YouTube creators (and former bosses), Chad Hurley and Steve Chen favour human curation over the quasi-random, algorithm-driven presentation of links. And while Stacks is what they've decided to focus on right now, they say more features are coming (I hope that will include the ability to embed stacks on other sites). For now, Delicious looks like a good way to get lost in the internet for while when you have nothing better to do. [Delicious via AllThingsD]
