p. It was just over two years ago that Google launched "Sidewiki":https://www.google.com/support/toolbar/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=157109&topic=24297&parent=24296&rd=1 - a browser sidebar allowing "anyone to comment about any site":http://searchengineland.com/google-sidewiki-allows-anyone-to-comment-about-any-site-26420. I liked the idea at the time and immediately made a Sidewiki entry ... on the page explaining Sidewiki:
bq. *Sidewiki^2* - What the what?! A Sidewiki post about the page explaining Sidewiki ... that's ... that's ... just craziness.
p. I moved on and made more important entries ... like this one on OmniNerd:
bq. *OmniNerd = Awesome (if you're a nerd)* - If you're a nerd like me, then this is the site for you. Write about the nerdy stuff you're into - and then discuss it with other nerds. (Okay, okay. I'm an admin on this site. Sue me.)
p. I even made more posts. I asked for features, reported bugs, recommended sites. It was fun ... until I realized I was the only one doing it. (I didn't need another place to have a conversation with myself; I already had my blog.)
p. So, I stopped. And now, probably because of me, "Sidewiki is going to die":http://www.google.com/sidewiki/intl/en/index.html. Sad.
