What's the best tech idea of 2009?

According to David Pogue, READABILITY is a "real life-changer".

I tried it with the Firefox browser. It’s a free button for your browser’s toolbar When you click it, Readability eliminates all the nonsense from whatever you are reading except the text and photos... no ads, no sidebars, no blinking, links, banners, promos or anything else. You select your own font size and margins for enjoyable reading.

Pogue warns that occasionally Readability doesn’t handle some webpages correctly.All you do is refresh the page to see the original.

Give it a try. You'll forget that you're reading from a screen.

I was just going to post on this, too. It's a very helpful resource and it works on our ClassLinks pages-- allowing for focusing on the specific project.

I have to experiment some more with settings, but Readability is definitely finding a place on my toolbar.
