crit.org (which no longer works) could have helped with comments

Years ago, the Foresight Institute (created by Eric Drexler of "Engines of Creation" and "Unbounding the Future" fame) created a site crit.org which was a way of marking up any web page. One would have to view the web page through crit.org, and then one would see the markup.

With a technology like that, we could have comments on any web page, and provide a link to the page which contains those comments, e.g. for http://google.com it would have been something like http://crit.org/page/google.com.

I'd be interested in throwing some resources at this, if anyone wants to start this project up again. (crit.org is now a computer security blog, it appears.)

Here's a page at Foresight discussing it, with a link to it, but of course it's no longer functional: http://www.foresight.org/WebEnhance/index.html

I love you. I'm sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you.
