Hi All,

The summon command <http://demo.monrai.com> [1] grabs the URL (URI)
representation of the input text, and inserts the link into the web page or
editor. This command is great for inserting links into blogs, email, blog
comments, twitter, and other places on the web, etc.

Currently, the command uses http://www.sindice.com to lookup the URL/URI,
http://demo.openlink.sw/about/html to display the data about the input, and
http://tinyURL.com to get a short URL of the target URL. Following are some
examples I inserted using the summon command:

Beatles (http://tinyurl.com/3l67ok),  firefox (http://tinyurl.com/47qkl3),
Naomi Watts (http://tinyurl.com/4j7ls2), web 2.0 (http://tinyurl.com/3eq8m8),
Food network (http://tinyurl.com/3uts4j)

Hints: First select some text in your browser, then ubiq *summon this** *to
replace the selected text with the link.

Feedback is appreciated.

I pray that you may prosper in all things and be healthy, even as your soul
prospers
