Mobile bookmarking the old-fashioned way

I’m on the bus, checking my RSS feeds with Bloglines Mobile.

I see a couple of links I might want for later. The obvious thing would be to bookmark them on Delicious. But that’s not an option using the mobile versions of many sites in Opera Mini.

So I reach for the nearest scrap of paper, my bus ticket, and scribble some reminders.

Paper wraps phone again, and as an experience it’s hard to beat.

Minimum requirements:

  • downtime for catching up on RSS
  • mobile phone, with browser
  • paper ticketing, without advertising on the back
  • web search to find the links later

Possible extension:

  • Location-based mobile bookmarking by bus stop:
