Wired Magazine dedicates an article to Jeremy Brosowsky, a man who, in 2006, came up with the idea of writing 100 word summaries of articles and making them available to subscribers. According to th article, many people now use such services, instead of search engines, to keep up with events in their field. I think it's a great idea! Maybe I should start up a newsletter where I write 100 word summaries of articles. Gee, if only I had thought of it before 2006, then maybe I would have been profiled in Wired. But still, maybe I should... oh, yeah, right. I guess I'd need to, you know, know someone at Wired to get any credit for the idea.
