I finally upgraded my work computer’s copy of Firefox to 3.01 just so I could testdrive this new extension called Ubiquity. Web 3.0 welcome to the real world! It’s got some growing up to do, but what newly birthed animal doesn’t?

Some things I’d like to see:
– insertion of command results into blog posts. Example: search for a book I want to feature in Amazon, LibraryThing or Worldcat and be able to put the resulting link/cover here so you can see what I’m planning to read this weekend or what I’m about to review. Currently, I think you can only do this with maps.
– Blog a page the way I can e-mail or Twitter something.

There’s a lot of growth opportunities for this service, and I’m definitely going to keep my eye on it.
