This is my first post to this list, so I hope I'm not breaking any  
protocols. Apologies in advance.

Mike Linksayer thought it would be worthwhile for me to send this to  
the list. We recently launched a content capture and attribution  
service called SNI.PS (http://sni.ps).  The tool is pretty simple, it  
captures text, video (YouTube and QuickTime),  images, and flash  
objects and then provides embed
code  to reuse the content. The embed code is RDFa that maintains  
attribution to the original source AND subsequently copied sources.  
For example if, I copied it from you and some one copied it from me.  
Both you as "origin" and me as "copied" are retained.

If you use a rel-license we capture that and bring that along with the  
embed code.

We already noticed that Wordpress does not support RDFa so a lot of  
the data is stripped out upon publishing. :(

There is a start of an API. SNI.PS is free to use and does not require  
users to log in to use the product. We hope it is useful. If you have  
ideas on how to make it more useful, we are eager to improve it.


Kind regards,

David Gratton
