PodiPodi Wants to be Your Web Command Line

ScreenshotPodiPodi is a new idea for web site interaction, inspired by Enso. Press Shift+Space on a PodiPodi-enabled page (you can try it on their home page) and then you can type in simple commands like “help” or “credits” to interact with the server. They offer services such as Google and Flickr searching and navigating a list of bookmarks provided by the site owner.

To add PodiPodi to your own site, you need to embed a bit of jQuery-based javascript. They’re taking applications for beta testers now. It’s an interesting idea, though whether it gets enough traction to become a common convention remains to be seen.
