You know the comments on Google Docs word processing documents? And how it creates a little discussion over in the right-hand margin?

I love it. Great for collaboration. I want to free it from Google Docs so I can use it with clients to discuss mock-ups or scaffolded websites.

Searching Google for "add comments [or discussions] to any website" only gets you results for adding blog-like comments (Disqus, JS-Kit, etc.)

Anyone know of a solution for what I'm after here?

    Is a web annotation service what you're looking for? If so, there are quite a few available. – Nick Sep 1 '11 at 17:42
  • Sounds like you just want a chat room or shoutbox. – DisgruntledGoat Oct 30 '11 at 10:15

There is a nice one I've seen used, here. It's an AJAX chatroom/shoutbox with PHP, so you can add it in or delete it at will. There is also a lot of customization involved.

    I don't think that's the right link. You've linked to a TED talk on "massive scale online collaboration". – Lèse majesté Mar 28 '12 at 7:27

    That's embarrasing lol. Unfortunately, I'm not in a place where I can test the link for a while, but I'm certain that's the one to use. Good catch! – Christopher Mar 30 '12 at 4:09
  • Just tested it. That's the right one. =P – Lèse majesté Mar 30 '12 at 4:11
  • Thanks! @Sean, do you need more information? If not, then please mark this answer as the correct one. – Christopher Mar 30 '12 at 4:15
