S/SW blog philosophy -

I credit favorite writers and public opinion makers.

A lifelong Democrat, my comments on Congress, the judiciary and the presidency are regular features.

My observations and commentary are on people and events in politics that affect the USA or the rest of the world, and stand for the interests of peace, security and justice.

Exploring the possibilities of Google Sidewiki

This is one of several different Yahoo! mailbox addresses. The MSNBC headline that caught my eye was about President Obama's proposed new banking rules, favored by Paul Volker. When Tim Geithner was on TV yesterday, he was explaining the new rules, and gave no hint that he was not entirely behind the President. Next step: Congress.
in reference to:
"Obama bank plan shifts power from Geithner - 1 hour ago Barak Obama's plan to impose sharper checks on the financial industry was the president's most visible break from the philosophy endorsed by Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner."

Sidewiki is only the beginning. More dangerous tools are out there, on the horizon. Check this out: (2.5 min video). Its a browser add-on ( that lets users insert images, comments, links, directly IN THE MIDDLE of any page.

Leonard, I am very grateful for this warning. What you describe is very scary, and I will be on the lookout. I always had reservations about Sidewiki, as well. Thanks.
