Netscape Reverts To Old Site, Wikirage Tracks Hot Edits

The indispensable Search Engine Land posted about two new interesting changes.

The first one is about Netscape and its decision to revert to the old "news" type of website and abandon the social site it transformed into in June of last year. The change was forced by Netscape fans who were unhappy that the site has lost much of its valuable news services and has turned into a Digg copycat.

In August we posted about WikiScanner, which showed who is behind anonymous edits in Wikipedia and now there is another application called Wikirage that "lets you see what topics are hot by quickly identifying the 100 most edited articles for the last hour, day, week, or month" . Obviously with the growing popularity of Wikipedia we will see more and more programs mixing all kind of wiki data.
