Amplify is a toolbar that lets you highlight an area of a web page you are viewing, and will retrieve the highlighted area (including images and even video or multimedia content) and place it on an individual 'amp'. An 'amp' is a one page snapshot of your captures from the various sites. http://www.amplify.com/faq.asp

A truly profound scientific breakthrough, Kuhn notes, "is seldom or never just an increment to what is already known. Its assimilation requires the reconstruction of prior theory and the re-evaluation of prior fact, an intrinsically revolutionary process that is seldom completed by a single man and never overnight." ...Paradigm shifts occur from time to time in business as well as in science. And as with scientific revolutions, they are often hard fought, and the ideas underlying them not widely accepted until long after they were first introduced. What's more, they often have implications that go far beyond the insights of their creators. http://www.masternewmedia.org/news/2004/06/28/the_structure_of_software_revolutions.htm

"Keep seeking and unearthing your precious discoveries without first asking something in return. The world of the future is made up of those who seek without end for the pleasure of knowing and also for those who get the greatest kick out of life when effectively sharing their discoveries for the tangible benefit of others." - Robin Good
