Andy’s got a great description of the premise, so I’ll lift his shamelessly
A little while ago my colleague Frank Jania posted a crazy thought on his internal IBM blog. The idea was that since Dogear (our internal social bookmarking system, and also part of Lotus Connections) has an API based on the Atom Publishing Protocol, and that just uses HTTP POST, it should be pretty simple to come up with a range of different ways to add bookmarks to Dogear using different technologies.
The gauntlet was thrown down, so a number of us started to contribute to FrankÂ’s wiki page, coming up with our own code examples.
Thanks to everyone who participated!
