Added Snapshots to the Blog

I just installed a nice little tool on this site called Snap Shots that enhances links with visual previews of the destination site, interactive excerpts of Wikipedia articles, MySpace profiles, IMDb profiles and Amazon products, displays inline videos, RSS, MP3s, photos, stock charts and more.

Sometimes the Snap Shot window will bring you the information you need, without your having to click the link, while other times it lets you "look ahead," before deciding if you want to follow a link or not. It seems like it could be a pretty cool tool.

If you decide it's annoying, just click the Options icon in the upper right corner of the Snap Shot and opt-out.
