DLS @ SXSW - Glass

Glass is a cool Firefox add-on that allows you to "write" on any website, sharing "slides" (notes) with anyone you wish (and anyone willing to install the add-on and set up an account). I've seen a few attempts at this in various incarnations (one particularly useful one to me is Wired Marker,...
