    If you do a significant amount of web-based research or news reading,
    you may be interested in Gnosis.

    Gnosis is a free Firefox add-in that takes the text of the page you are
    viewing and uses sophisticated natural language processing tools to
    extract the people, companies, organizations, geographies and other
    items for the text. These items are then presented in a sidebar that
    allows you to initiate searches from them on Google, Technorati and
    Wikipedia.

    Behind the scenes there’s some cool web services stuff going on – but
    for the user it simply enhances the effectiveness of your research or
    reading.

    Gnosis is available at http://sws.clearforest.com/Blog/?page_id=32

    Nothing Orwellian here. We analyze, we return the results, we throw
    everything away. Just a tool to help people do web-based research a
    little faster and better.
