Google adopts W3C's Amaya/Annotea project? Well, no, of course not.

But they're trying to do much the same thing with Firefox/Blogger/Blog Search, it seems :-

google.com/tools/firefox/webco ...

Annotea:

"Annotea enhances collaboration via shared metadata based Web annotations, bookmarks, and their combinations. By annotations we mean comments, notes, explanations, or other types of external remarks that can be attached to any Web document or a selected part of the document without actually needing to touch the document. When the user gets the document he or she can also load the annotations attached to it from a selected annotation server or several servers and see what his peer group thinks."

Blogger Web Comments:

"Blogger Web Comments for Firefox is an extension that makes it easy to see what bloggers are saying about a page you're viewing in Firefox and even make your own blog post about it, all without leaving the page you're on."

They even have in mind to use other annotation servers, sorry blog services, for posting too :-

google.com/tools/firefox/webco ...

"8. I don't use Blogger for my blog. How can I add a comment?

Currently we only support adding comments via Blogger. We hope to add support for other blogging tools and services in the future."

Pretty cool, in theory.

And to think people used to get worked up about Smart Tags ;)
