Some weeks ago, I noted the existence of Google’s Sidewiki (Is Sidewiki evil? (Probably not, but it’s annoying)) and mentioned that I’d planned to install a Sidewiki blocker on my websites. Well, I’ve done that. I’ve also installed the Google Toolbar thing, and now have a Sidewiki button nestled up there next to my Firefox URL box.
Every so often, I click on it to see if a website has any Sidewiki annotation, but thus far, I’ve yet to see one. Does this mean that Sidewiki’s a flop? Or just reflect the nature of the sites I visit (many are forums or blogs with pages of relatively transient interest)? And need I have bothered to install a Sidewiki blocker at all?
