SpinSpotter: What We Do

This looks fun.  I installed it on Firefox 3.01 but can't get it to work.  The tool bar keeps saying "Could not Connect".  I read about it in the NYT here.

Discussion here on reddit.

Not worth much if it couldn't find any spin in this article.
Good example, but try it again when they fix it ... now its not finding any spin anywhere as far as i can tell.

This might be a tool useful to the group UnhackTheBrain & could be a good start. It does load and seems to churn, but so far it has not identified any spin.
Hmm ... i don't get any "churn".  The tool bar always says "Cound not Connect" .  Once when i clicked on Create Marker it gave me a warning error ""Spinspotter: jsonrpc.ToolbarService is undefined".   I'm corresponding with support to see if they can figure this out.
