I couldn't stand moving from computer to computer and having to look up
different bookmarks.  I wanted to be able to search my bookmarks and have
bookmarks I never used moved out of my way.  I wanted to share my bookmarks
with someone.  And I wanted total integration with the browser, so I didn't
have to go through a web interface or a specific bookmarking program.

<p> Bookie is a project born of an itch to make collaborative bookmarking a
reality.  It was partly conceived out of <a
href="http://www.mozilla.org/blue-sky/ui/199805/bookmarks.html">good
bookmarking</a> and <a
href="http://www.mozilla.org/blue-sky/misc/199805/collaborative-bookmark-index.html">collaborative
bookmark indexing</a>.

<p>The server is written in Java which sends bookmark information over a
protocol to the client.  The server is written and can get bookmarks and
folders to the client in RDF format.

<p> An integration to Mozilla is halfway done.  There is also a debugging
client written in Swing.
