I’ve played with Squidoo a little bit (and written about it here) and it feels to me like it has real potential as a tool to help filter all the stuff there is out there on the Net, I hope it meets that potential.

Squidoo certainly does have Wikipedia and About like features, but I think there are important differences. Wikipedia is about documenting objective facts and avoiding POV (point of view) while Squidoo is all about individual point of view, and that will be why it works if it does. About is great for some things, but it is closed, Squidoo is open to anyone who wants to create a lens, I think that’s an important distinction.

I’m not sure where Squidoo’s going to go, but I think it might just work.
