After figuring out yesterday how to tell how many times an article has been bookmarked on del.icio.us, I started wondering how many times readers have bookmarked all the articles across the entire site, and which articles are most popular on del.icio.us.
So I used my handy coding skills to write a small application to loop through and figure out the amount of times that each article has been bookmarked.
Most Bookmarked Articles
There were actually a number of articles that I removed from the list, since they were about Ubuntu Edgy or other software that is no longer current.
Unfortunately, I can’t distribute the application yet as it will probably get your IP address blocked by del.icio.us temporarily, because of the large volume of requests that it sends to their servers. (I got blocked for a few hours)
I’ve got an email in to ask them if I can resolve the problem and distribute the application.
