Genius first started out as Rap
Genius
, a humble attempt to annotate rap music online.
 In July of last year, the company expanded to annotate all kinds of
text: rock music, poetry, literature, speeches, etc.

That was nothing. Genius is now trying to annotate the
entire Internet.

Genius says annotation is a feature that was going to be
included in early versions of the Internet, but the feature
was scrapped.

Well, now any webpage can be annotated by entering “genius.it/”
before the URL. For example, here’s the annotated version of Genius’ Wikipedia
page
.

There’s also a new Genius Chrome extension and bookmarklet.

These new features are currently in beta. You can sign up to
become a Genius Beta tester here.
