Happy New Year!
Sometimes I share links to Time Magazine’s top ten list. This year I will just share one of David Pogue’s recommendations for best innovations in 2009. He is one of the people I follow on Twitter who seems to consistently have interesting and informative posts. And I’m not just saying that because he included five of my tweets in his new book, “The World According to Twitter.”
His weekly tech video are also good.
Here is what he says about readability:
“The single best tech idea of 2009, though, the real life-changer, has got to be Readability. It’s a free button for your Web browser’s toolbar (get it at lab.arc90.com/experiments/readability). When you click it, Readability eliminates everything from the Web page you’re reading except the text and photos. No ads, blinking, links, banners, promos or anything else. Times Square just goes away.”
“Readability makes the world online a calmer, cleaner, more beautiful place.”
