Tracking activity: Diigo site bookmark activity data in a Google Spreadsheet (who is saving your stuff)

Recently I’ve been interested in tracking activity around resources.

Not at FOTE11 today (you can follow the live stream) but was interested in what data I could extract from the #fote11 twitter stream and process as the event unfolds.
