delicious, nooooooes

Was everyone else as taken by surprise about this as I was? I had absolutely no idea this was coming. I was never a Delicious power-user, though, so I wasn't really in a position to see the decline. (I still insist on typing )

My question is, is there a way to export *other people's* bookmarks from delicious? Like, search for tag x/y and then export all of that for future perusal? Or export a particular person's rec list? I mostly used my own account to save recipes, but I did a huge amount of searching to find fic. Damnit, Yahoo. *shakes tiny fist of rage*

Man, this is my problem with the cloud, or the idea that digital media will someday entirely replace print media. What happens when someone pulls the plug?
Maybe someone will do something for Delicious like reocities and the Wayback Machine did for GeoCities, but the essential problem- how ephemeral digital media is- remains. :/
