Gis.to is a startup, today is the last day you can invest in them on Kickstarter.

They are claiming they can help us find the best content on the web by giving us short summaries of an article. It sounds interesting…….   Intro:   “Meet Len Kendall, the man who thinks the internet needs Cliff Notes.

He says Google is making you stupider. His gis.to aims to make you smarter.   There are going to be people who just read the abstracts and their journey stops there. But there will be other people, like us, who often don’t know whether to invest the time into a long-form piece of content because the headline simply doesn’t give us enough information.

Gis.to isn’t intended to stop people from reading original texts; it’s supposed to guide them to the long-form writing they’ll enjoy most. The people who don’t read will continue to not read.

We’re just trying to sway the people who feel overwhelmed with content into focusing their attention towards quality writing.   http://www.forbes.com/sites/susannahbreslin/2011/08/17/this-man-thinks-the-internet-needs-cliffsnotes/
