This is a commercial - make summaries for blogs - automatically

Sorry, and I don't do this very often but I am hugging myself over this little programme developed by Girish (my partner in language software in India).

So, you find a web page. Its a long story and too long to blog. You want to blog a summary?


This little programme does it for you.

Its a tool bar for Internet Explorer (Firefox to follow) and is available
here. You download it, install it and thereafter any time you want to make a summary of a web page you click the summary bar and it makes a summary.

Automatically.

You can edit the summary and can cut 'n paste.

You can blog it (Blogger only at this stage) and its virtually automatic.

There is an embryo wiki about it here (this is the fastest development and marketing event ever. We only started development last week and alph and beta tesing was - well - quick so we are keeping our fingers crossed).

Is there an ethical issue here – it rips off IP so fast!

The programme does include hyperlinks to the original but is that enough?

Try it, have fun and let me know how it goes. You get 50 free summaries and then we will be charging for the programme but not so as to break the bank ($30 – even PR thinkers have to eat!).
