Google Shutting Down Sidewiki Dec. 5, 2011

Google is finally putting the nail in the coffin of Sidewiki, a ridiculous idea born in November, 2009. See Google Launches Sidewiki Allowing Anyone To Publish Comments On Your Website for information about the launch.

The announcement was originally made in a blog post from September, A Fall Spring-Clean – The Official Google Blog. Today, Google sent out emails to all users who had contributed “blog posts” to websites using Sidewiki letting those users know that the service would be discontinued and all content would be removed on Dec. 5, 2011.
