Hey how about blank white web pages (no relation)? I was catching up on some blog reading today, and found a cool new underground web commenting system that allows you to add comments to any website. The premise reminds me of a dot-bomb company my friend Tim worked for, Crowdburst, but this one is 2^w00t times better since it's in ruby and using it initially required you to edit your /etc/hosts file (otherwise the http://hoodwink.d/ URL is gonna bite ya, l33t!). That's no longer necessary, since there's a way to achieve the same effect with a new ruby proxy app called MouseHole (that's an alternative to Firefox/Greasemonkey), but it's still cool.

Building on top of all that, is Wasteland, a forum site that appears as a blank white web page to the uninitiated, but is full of juicy goodness for the wise.
