The Harvard Gazette has a great article about a former mayor of Bogota, Columbia named Antanas Mockus and his creative social experimentation. I’ve long been a fan of the Global Ideas Bank and I think that there are a lot of creative ideas out there that are worth a try. The article gives evidence that some of those creative ideas do work.
I would love to be able to switch more easily between the various Firefox sidebars I’ve started using regularly (Scrapbook, Wikalong, and Sage). I wish there were an extension for Firefox to allow for easier switching between the various sidebars (ie, tabs). It might not be that much work for someone who knows more about developing Firefox extensions, so I thought I’d make my first Lazyweb request.
Update: I’ve managed to do almost what I was asking for, by adding a row of Toolbar buttons for each of the Sidebars I use. The only one that doesn’t yet offer a toolbar button is Wikalong and I’ve posted a feature request for that one.
Update 2 (01/12/2007): I’ve now been using the All-in-One Sidebar for quite a while. It does everything I requested above and then some.
I’m now giving WordPress a spin. So far, I’ve found it to be none of the above. For lack of a better term, it seems “clean,” similar to what I like about pmwiki.
If you can read this, WordPress is working. Woohoo!
