SAN FRANCISCO, September 1, 2006 (PodTech News) — Joshua Schachter is the director of engineering in the social search group at Yahoo. He’s also the founder of del.icio.us, a social bookmarking, social software web service for storing and sharing web bookmarks. PodTech’s Catherine Girardeau sat down with him in Dot’s Café at Yahoo’s Santa Clara campus on Wednesday to talk about what’s changed for del.icio.us since Yahoo, and his vision for del.icio.us’s future.

REPORTER’S NOTES: Firsts and not-firsts: This is the first podcast interview I’ve done that contains the word orthogonal. This is not the first podcast interview I’ve done in which I forgot to ask one of the questions I’d planned to ask. Here it is: “Why did you decide to do a domain hack and add all those periods to del.icio.us?” (It looks like wikipedia needs some help with the “domain hack” definition: be my gu.es.t.) And since I’m on the subject of definitions, one of the odd and unexpected links I del.icio.usly discovered today: How to Speak 19th Century. Look out for more tattle, palaver and flying langrage in my next Web 2.0 Voices cast.
