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 (a ~1.7MB animated GIF) that demonstrates a 50+ year old hack for summarizing news articles and other types of online content. 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.
