Suffering from information overload? Too much TL;DR happening in your life? Attention span just isn’t what it used to be?
Watch this short ~30 second screencast that demonstrates a 50+ year old hack for summarizing news articles and other types of online content.
This video may seem a bit more austere than the others, and that's entirely intentional. It was designed so that it could be compressed down to an animated GIF as an experiment to see if that would be a good form factor for presenting hacks. (After all, it seemed fitting that the presentation of a text summarization algorithm would be as compressed and summarized as possible, right?) The text summarization code itself is taken from Mining the Social Web as are all of the examples in this channel.
