Douglas MacMillan over at Business Week brings us this article on Google’s 20 Hottest Tools. A cool list of many of the awesome things Google has been working on over the years. I have convered many of them, including Google Wave, Google SikiWiki and Google Patents. But this list contains some that I bet you may have not heard of including Google Heath, Google SketchUp, Google Mars, and Google News Timeline. Give the article, Google’s 20 Hottest Tools, a look over and learn more about all the awesome things Google adds to our lives.
The world of Google introduces yet anther creative and relevant application known as Sidewiki. As Google says, it lets you “contribute helpful information to any Web page.”
Here’s a 1-minute video that describes the concept:
You will have to have SideWiki installed in your browser for it to work. Although, I expect this to most likely be integrated with the very popular Google Toolbar. In a nutshell, it appears Google SideWiki makes, within SideWiki, each and every Web page something similar to Twitter in that live conversations (with opinions and all) reside. This can also be as the video states “expert opinion” although that can be a bit bias as to what qualifies.
So far, SideWiki looks to better enhance the experience of visiting and interacting with Web pages. I’m curious to see how this application develops. To the future!
If you are interested to give it a shot, and why not, here is the link to Google’s site to install Google SideWiki.
