23 Squidoo, Baby.

Search a lens, build a lens. Enter Seth Godin & Co.'s foray into Web 2.0: Squidoo.

The idea behind Squidoo is that the Web currently has too much info to sift through. Just type a generic search term into Google or Technorati and you'll get more fluff than usable content. Squidoo invites all sorts of people to create "lenses" on innumerable topics. So now, instead of wasting time sifting through pages of search engine results, you can visit a lens on a subject and get a solid overview in a minute or two.

The site just opened to the public this week. Thankfully, I was invited to the beta test where I created a lens on word-of-mouth marketing which I invite you to visit early and often. In a completely unrelated note, I've also begun a lens on chiles since burning my upper GI is one of life's purest pleasures.

P.S: The lame reference in my headline comes from the century-old hipster phrase, "23 Skidoo." I never knew what it meant until now.

What you need to do is find a clip of Carol Channing singing "Skidoo Skidoo" and modify the lyrics...

Ok, the movie was wretched but you can't have it all.

Thanks inkling,

I had never heard of 23 skidoo until now. I think that is quite interesting.
