I have written my own social bookmarking app in Catalyst - it's nearly
working.  You can try it at http://zby.aster.net.pl/LinkM/.

I am mostly proud of the UI ideas - integration of tagging, searching and
sorting making the process of search recursive.  You can click on the tags,
nicks, host addresses and you get the resultst filtered by them, then you
can add new filters, sort by columns etc.  I have lots of thoughts about the
cognitive process of finding a web page from which you remember only some
random pieces and I tried to create an ideal search interface.

I have not published the code yet as it is not entirely working but I can
provide it to anyone that would like to build something based on it.  I
would love to discuss the interface ideas as well.
