de.lirio.us is a publicly created website if I’ve ever seen one.
True to my words I’ve begun paving the way to making the content open source. All content is now licensed under a creative commons license.
Exporting and importing data is still being worked on (hey it’s an open source site - release early!?), but a screen scraper should work handily when you need it to.

de.lirio.us - My latest project. All the buzzwords, in one package!
Blogging, tagging, folksonomies, social bookmarking, and a bit more. And the whole thing is open source.
What’s really sweet about this is that you can include a long
detailed note with each post in addition to a one line description. That becomes your blog post.. if you want or just leave it for folks to read.
Please try it out, tell your buds, kick some tires. In the spirit of open source, it ain’t perfect, but good enough to do a release & let people poke at it.
More here too.
The source code is open source & in perl if you feel like hacking it up some.
I dislike the idea of Google’s Toolbar “changing” anything on a web page.
While I dislike it I’m not going to call for ban or anything. Do what you want.
There only appears to be one person actively supporting it in my blog bubble. Cory. There are certainly a lot of good things that can be done with it. Like most things; however, this won’t be the case.
On the idea of the browser “changing” stuff: Imagine Google’s Toolbar swapping out BoingBoing’s ads with ads of their own. I’ve seen more than once the BB bloggers complain about their hosting costs, and what a pittance is left over. Hey, that’s cool. No beef. But, wait until someone appropriates your revenue for their own in form of a Toolbar virus, spyware, adware, doo-hickey.
Everyone has something they definitely won’t want changed (like mailto tages - no Google Toolbar doesn’t do this) and that’s really the point of objection for me.
Mind you, in a week I’ll have totally forgotten about this & will probably never think of it again since no one is really going to use this anyway in any meaningful numbers. Too much work.
