Brijit closes

The long-form article summarization service Brijit decided to close its doors today. It would appear that their business model (paying people to summarize long-form news articles) was not viable. I may be in the minority, but I used the tool as a clipping service, subscribing to feeds of articles about the industry (Facebook, Social Networks, etc.). I’m really sad to see it go; it was one of the only tools I actually used on a regular basis. You can still get access to their archives.
