http://delicious.com is a site offering an Internet bookmarking service. The great feature of delicious is its taggingsystem, which allows you to put ‘tags’ on each bookmark you save. For an example, to see the author’s tagged URLs for English for Academic Purposes (the teaching of academic writing) please have a look at the author’s delicious bookmarks with the tag <eap>, at
http://www.delicious.com/rolenzo/eap
and then look at that set of bookmarks, narrowed further with a second tag, <AWL>, at
