If you want to export the Delicious Library database to other applications, it will choose the tab 
delimited route. 
If you are familiar with the book reviews we do at macCompanion, you may understand why I 
am excited about the Delicious Library book format. It details a lot of what we capture so cross 
verification of content will be easier to do.  
And even though the WebDewey tutorial by the OCLC does not support Unix of Mac OS X, 
maybe, just maybe these Delicious Monster guys can pull it off and include the Dewey Decimal 
Classification (
http://www.oclc.org/dewey/
) in the next release for the shelves? Please? 
I tried the Voice Search and it was hit and miss. Must be me and my voice. Some books were 
picked and other apps showed up when I provided book titles by voice. Feelin' lucky today? 
Anyway, now I can restock my real shelves, based on the order I can organize them in using the 
virtual shelving provided by Delicious Monster.  Now you can too. The app is both sweet and 
sour, but it is delicious to the taste, and very desirable. 
BTW, Shawn King interviewed Mike Matas about 45 minutes or so into the YourMacLife 
program for November 10, 2004:

, but you 
need to be an Audible (
http://www.audible.com
) subscriber to hear it. Apple must have heard it 
because Mike Matas is moving on to become part of Apple. 
Man oh man, you have to go read DrunkenBlog's interview of Wil Shipley (skip over the few 
swear words intermingled in otherwise excellent interviewing and response) at 
http://www.drunkenblog.com/drunkenblog archives/000581.html
. He also has a downloadable 
23 page PDFed booklet by Mike Matas on  The Art of Delicious Library  there. He posted it in 
hopes folks wouldn't link directly, but would read the interview first. 
We are looking forward to the promising 2.0 release, but you don't need to wait. If you are 
hemmed in by cataloguing projects or if you want a 1 button way to sell your excess Books, CDs 
or DVDs on Amazon, this is a way cool app to do it with. Way cool!
