Pinboard: Free social bookmarking offer for libraryland

As seen by several posts on Twitter, on Christmas day Pinboard (which was charging around $7, now $9.03 & the price will gradually increase in the future as more people join) blogged

Merry Christmas Librarians!

Since the site had such a wonderful year, we’d like to share our good fortune with a group of particularly hard-working information wranglers.

From now until January 1, we’re offering free Pinboard accounts to librarians*.

If you work as a librarian, or are getting your degree in library science, send an email to mentioning how you qualify and I will send you an activation code for the site.

If you’re one of the wonderful forward-thinking librarians who already joined the site, I’ll give you a free year of archiving instead.

* Please note – LIBRARIANS, not LIBERTARIANS. Maybe next year!

I especially appreciate the offer to library students. I’m not sure I’ll take them up on it since my Diigo import went well enough. Anyone out there currently using Pinboard for library and/or class resources who can convince me otherwise?
