Coincidentally I just put together a quick & dirty summarizer/keyword
extractor based on the Open Text Summarizer [1]. Doing a GET on
something of the form:


- will return some RDF/XML.
To a great extent it's stuck with what OTS has to offer, but I'd very
much appreciate suggestions on how to make it more useful. Source is
at [2].

The motivation behind this was to augment some bookmark/tagging data
[3] (though I haven't yet hooked it up). I reckon making connections
across different (somehow related) information sources can offer a
huge amount over that of NLP alone, more than compensating for its
well-known limitations.
