I've finally given up on Delicious. Until (unless?) the network returns, I'm seeing more on Pinboard, so I may as well save things there. It's not ideal - I feed Instapaper starred items in and they don't get the same level of metadata as they should - but it's better than this.

"Here’s what we did: grabbed some 50,000 geotagged photos from Flickr, analyzed the pixel colors of each photo, then mapped a grid of the most frequent color hues." "Every dot on this map shows the most common hue of photos around that point." "A notable outcome (drawback, perhaps) is that dark and unsaturated brownish colors, very common in photographs, show up as orange on the map."

On attempts to talk to Prospero for its fortieth birthday, and the hazards therein (such as figuring out how to, when the group that maintained it has been broken up for most of that time).
