I would love to see the online scriptures include marking and annotating functions, then I'd love to see Mark My Scriptures sync with it so I could carry my markings etc on my Palm and use it on the website.

The solution can have either different copies of scriptures, or one set of scriptures and you have different levels of tagging (personal, shared, global, etc.). That way you can have a personal set of notes, while also having some shared between you and your family or friend. Maybe the global sharing could become argumentative and controversial. But I do think it would be neat to start a scripture study with a buddy where you have a topic of focus or something.

There definitely needs to be a way to personalize the scriptures and to securely store one's personal information in the web app's database. Would not be too dissimilar to how this blogging web-site works. All of these comments and links have to be stored somewhere!
